121 stranded hikers rescued on Kauai

By 67AM KPUA News

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) Fire officials on Kauai say they have rescued 121 hikers who became stranded by rising waters that made a stream impossible to pass.

The Kauai County Fire Department said Monday that 98 hikers flew out Monday after spending the night at Hanakapiai on the Napali Coast. Another 23 people were flown out on Sunday evening before dark.

The stranded hikers rescued Sunday included several children, including an 18-month old and a 12-year-old boy who was swept downstream but able to get onto nearby rocks.

Two rescuers spent the night in the valley with the remaining hikers.

No injuries are reported.

State officials have closed the park until further notice.
