A 19-year-old woman was airlifted by Maui Fire Department’s Air 1 in Iao Valley State Park on Tuesday.
MFD officials say the woman fell backward from about 5-feet while standing on a rock. She struck the back of her head, leaving her unconscious and with a laceration and bleeding.
The victim’s hiking partner had to hike for 20 minutes before she could get cell reception and call for her.
Upon rescue arrival, the woman was alert. She was transported to the hospital.
