Rescues Underway at Waimoku Falls & Pīpīwai Trail
Emergency crews are responding two separate reports involving injured hikers in the Kīpahulu area of Haleakalā National Park in East Maui.
The incidents were reported at around 3:21 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.
One injury involves a female hiker with an ankle injury at the bottom of Waimoku Falls.
Another injury involves a woman in her 50s on the Old Pipiwai Trail who reportedly sustained a hip injury.
The Maui Fire Department’s Air-1 helicopter was dispatched to assist with the rescues, but was cancelled for at least one of the individuals who was reportedly making their way back out on their own.
