A 49-year-old woman was airlifted from the Kalalau Trail Saturday afternoon after she injured her ankle hiking, Kauai Fire Department said.
The woman, a visitor from Smith Falls, Ontario, was hiking near mile marker six around 12:44 p.m. when she fell.
Rescue crews airlifted her out of the trail and took her to Princeville Airport.
The woman opted to not wait for medics who were en route from Wilcox Hospital and instead took a taxi, fire officials said.
Firefighters assisted the woman from Air 1 to the taxi.
