Boy rescued from ledge in Haiku area

A 14-year-old boy was airlifted to safety Friday after he became stuck on a ledge while making his way down a trail leading to the shoreline at Uaoa Bay in the Haiku area, a fire official said.

Paia firefighters and a Kahului rescue crew responded to the 11:21 a.m. call.

The boy, who was with two other teenage boys, called 911 after being stuck on the ledge in a very steep part of the trail, said Fire Services Chief Rylan Yatsushiro.

He said rescue firefighters aboard the Fire Department’s Air One helicopter flew the boy to a landing zone near the trailhead. The boy reportedly was uninjured.
