Hunter rescued from Ka‘u forest


Fire/rescue crews responded to an alarm shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday (Oct 27) for a hiker in distress near the Alili Springs Trail in Ka‘u.

A hunting party of four had been in a forested area with three men in the group being able to hike out. A fourth member was unable to hike out due to dehydration and difficult location. Rescue crews located the dehydrated 33 year-old man 3.5 miles in the thick forest. Crews stayed with the man overnight until they were airlifted out by the Fire Department’s Chopper One at daybreak Thursday (Oct 28).
