Fire personnel this afternoon rescued a woman who survived a 100-foot fall over a guardrail of the H-3 freeway between the Harano Tunnels after a one car crash, according to fire Capt. David Jenkins.
Jenkins said the woman’s car was involved in the accident on the Kaneohe-bound lanes of the freeway; the woman got out of the car and fell over the guardrail, he said.
Firefighters were summoned at 5:40 p.m.
Firefighters were able to talk with the woman and she was able to direct personnel to hike to her location by 6:12 p.m., Jenkins said.
The woman fell about 100 feet, he said. What caused her to fall wasn’t available.
“She was alert and able to speak with personnel and reported that she fell from the highway approximately two hours prior,” Jenkins said.
The patient was stabilized, treated for her injuries, hoisted back up to the freeway, and transferred to Emergency Medical Services personnel.
