Firefighters rescued a local 26-year-old hiker who fell 20 feet from a trail in Manoa Wednesday afternoon.
Emergency Medical Services personnel treated and transported the man, who was in serious condition with multiple fractures and abrasions, to a hospital, said Emergency Services Department spokeswoman Shayne Enright.
Enright said the man fell about 20 feet from a trail known as Seven Bridges.
The man was a member of a party of four hikers when he slipped and fell, fire Capt. Jeff Roache said.
Firefighters got the call at 1:15 p.m. today.
Personnel from five units responded. They got to the scene at 1:24 p.m.
“He was seriously bleeding and not completely alert,” Roache said.
At 2 p.m., firefighters remained at the scene and Air 1 inserted two rescue personnel, Roache said.
A Honolulu Fire Department official said the man was airlifted to waiting Emergency Medical Services personnel.
