Firefighters airlifted a hiker in distress Friday afternoon in Wailua, according to the Kauai Fire Department.
Around 2 p.m., a 66-year-old woman from California apparently fell while hiking Uluwehi Falls, or Secret Falls.
Firefighters hiked the trail and found the woman. They were prepared to hike the woman out of the area, but later asked for assistance from Air 1 because of the hazardous condition of the trail.
The injured woman was airlifted and transported to Wailua Homesteads Park and paramedics later took her to Wilcox Hospital.
