HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu fire crews rescued two stranded hikers on Thursday after they called for help the night before.
Around 9 p.m. Wednesday, two females called for help when they got disoriented after setting out from a trailhead in Moanalua Valley.
Weather conditions were too dangerous for a helicopter, Capt. David Jenkins said, so crews started hiking in around 10 p.m. However, around 1:30 a.m., one firefighter was injured after he fell about 15 feet.
The firefighter was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries and later released.
Crews resumed their search around 6:30 a.m. Thursday and located the hikers around 12 p.m. The hikers were escorted down the trail where they could be safely airlifted to the landing zone at Moanalua Valley Park.
