Two early morning hikers ran into trouble today on the Koko Head trail and Nuuanu’s Lulumahu Falls trail after falling, and required the assistance of firefighters.
Firefighters got the first call at 6:23 a.m. after a 10-year-old boy fell about 10 feet.
It took fire rescue personnel just 15 minutes to reach the boy, who was about 100 feet below the summit.
The boy was airlifted by the fire department’s helicopter to Koko Head District Park and turned over to paramedics.
No major injuries were reported.
At 6:56 a.m., firefighters were sent to the intersection of the Old Pali Road and Pali Highway where a 51-year-old man had been taken by friends after falling 15 feet while hiking on the Lulumahu Falls trail, which begins at the Old Pali Road.
The hiker suffered no major injuries and was treated by paramedics.
