Kauai fire officials rescue injured hiker from Kalalau Valley

KALALAU, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 48-year old woman from San Diego, Calif. was airlifted from Kalalau Valley Saturday morning after sustaining a leg injury.

Officials say the woman was crossing the Kalalau stream with family and friends at around 9:30 a.m. when she slipped and fell and broke her lower right leg.

A boat crew transported most of her group to Ke'e Beach and then contacted authorities about the incident.

When the rescuers arrived on scene, they found the injured woman being tended to by her husband and two enforcement officers of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources.

Rescue crews treated the woman and then airlifted her to Princeville Airport. She was then transported to Wilcox Hospital.
