Firefighters rescued Tuesday evening an injured hiker from the Koko Crater Trail.
Fire Capt. David Jenkins said an approximately 40-year-old visitor from Oregon was hiking alone when he was injured due to an apparent fall.
Other hikers found the injured man near the summit of the trail, trying to make his way down. They saw he needed help and called 911, Jenkins said.
Fire rescue personnel were dispatched at 6:22 p.m., arrived at 6:29 p.m. and hiked up the trail. They got to the patient’s side at 6:54 p.m., treated and stabilized the patient, Jenkins said.
He was airlifted to a landing zone below and was transferred to Emergency Medical Services at 7:17 p.m.
A total of five fire companies responded to the call.
