A woman from Smith Falls, Ontario was airlifted from Kalalau Trail Saturday afternoon.

The 49-year-old had been hiking near mile-marker six at approximately 12:44 p.m. when she fell and hurt her ankle.

Rescue 3 responded to the scene aboard Air 1, placed the woman in a Stokes litter and flew her to Princeville Airport.

Upon arrival at the airport, the woman opted not to wait for the medics who were en route from Wilcox Memorial Center and took a taxi there instead.
