Fire crews rescued a 33-year-old Seattle man who was injured while hiking along the Hanakapiai Trail on Saturday.
Kauai fire officials said they received a report about 5 p.m. that a hiker had a possible broken ankle near Hanakapiai Falls. Rescuers aboard Air 1 found the man about 1/4 mile from the falls.
Firefighters said the hiker was airlifted to the landing zone, where he was loaded in a helicopter and flown to Lihu'e Airport. The hiker was then taken to Wilcox Hospital.
