A woman visiting from France took a fall on the Pipiwai Trail in the Bamboo Forest Sunday, injuring her left ankle. The 56 year-old woman suffered a possible ankle sprain about 1.5 miles into the trail.
Maui Fire Department Engine 7, Utility 7 and Air-1 responded. Hana firefighters with the assistance of a park ranger were able to make access to the victim. She had a possible left ankle sprain and was unable to walk out. The patient had to be carried out about a quarter mile to a park service road. From there she was transported by four wheel drive vehicle to the National park’s base yard where she was examined and treated by Hana medics.
