KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

An adult female hiker was injured after falling 40 feet while hiking on the Haiku Stairs Trail Saturday afternoon.

Around 12:30 p.m. the Honolulu Fire Department responded to the call of a hiker in distress.

A few hours later the woman and her hiking partner were rescued and airlifted to Kaneohe District Park.

The second hiker, an adult male, was not injured.

The trail has been closed since a deadly landslide in 1987 but many people continue to illegally hike in the area.
