Hikers rescued from Waipio Valley



(KPUA) Eight overdue hikers are safe and sound after a rescue crew airlifted them to safety Sunday morning. The hikers called for help Saturday, but were forced to spend the night along the Hiilawe Falls Trail in Waipio Valley, when rapidly rising rivers and streams prevented them from leaving. 

The hikers were located the following morning with extrication efforts beginning at approximately 6:30 a.m. and concluding around 2:00 p.m. 

None of the hikers were injured.
