HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Firefighters rescued three hikers after a rockslide on the Manoa Tunnel trail Saturday afternoon.

Crews responded to a waterfall on the trail around 2:30 p.m. 

Fortunately, no one suffered any life-threatening injuries. 

According to a spokesperson with the Honolulu Fire Department,  a 33-year-old man and a 13-year-old girl sustained minor injuries to their wrist and leg.

A 7-year-old girl had to be airlifted to the hospital because of injuries to her back. While her condition is unknown, officials say she is alert and conscious.

We're told the hikers are all visitors to the islands.

It's unknown what caused the slide in the first place, but fire officials say a large group of people were at the waterfall.

As of Saturday afternoon, state and rescue crews have not decided whether to close the trail.
