A 21-year-old man from Florida had to spend Monday night in the Koolau Mountains above Manoa Falls.
Friends of the hiker called 911 at 11:30 p.m. Monday after not hearing from the hiker for nearly 12 hours, the fire department said.
The hiker had posted an Instagram photo of himself just after noon on Monday at the summit.
Fire rescue personnel were able to contact the hiker by cell phone. The department’s helicopter then extracted him above Manoa Falls and airlifted him to Manoa District Park at 8 a.m. today. The hiker did not suffer any injuries and refused medical treatment.
