Honolulu (KHON2) — The Honolulu Fire Department (HFD) airlifted a 24-year-old Washington woman from the Pauor Flats Trail after injuring her right knee on Wednesday, June 16.
HFD said it received a 911 call on Wednesday at 12:16 pm to report the injured hiker.
According to fire authorities, the woman traveled from Washington to Oahu and went hiking with her three companions from the Manoa Falls Trail to the Pau or Flats Trail. The first HFD unit arrived at 12:24 pm and established commands to access the situation.
The HFD Air 1 rescue helicopter flew over the hiker’s location and inserted two rescue specialists because the hiker is in a very deep and high area of the trail. Rescue personnel stabilized the hiker, placed a stint on his lap, and placed it on a stretcher.
The hiker was then taken to an extraction point, where Air 1 airlifted her to the landing zone of Manoa District Park. The 24-year-old was transferred to an emergency medical service at 1:54 pm
According to EMS, the 24-year-old child seems to have fallen from a standing height. She was taken to the hospital in a stable condition.
The other three hikers were unharmed and left the trail with HFD personnel.
