EAST HONOLULU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu Emergency Medical Services responded to six separate incidents involving hikers at Diamond Head between 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m on Sunday.

The Honolulu Fire Department says three people had to be air-lifted from the top of the trail.

All patients were evaluated by paramedics but only one agreed to be transported to an emergency room.
