Maui man rescued after became exhausted during hike

WAILIKU, Hawaii (AP) - Maui authorities say an 85-year-old man was rescued over the weekend after he became exhausted during a hike.

The Maui News reports the man was airlifted to safety from the King's Trail near La Perouse Bay in South Maui Saturday afternoon.

Authorities say the man was unable to walk out on his own after he complained of shortness of breath during a hike with a female friend.

According to authorities, another hiker came across the pair and called for help.

Medics checked the ailing man out and treated him at the scene. Authorities say the man declined to be transported for further treatment.
