A hiker was rescued from the Lahaina Pali Trail on Sunday after becoming fatigued, fire officials said.

Firefighters from Ladder 3 out of Lahaina found the 57-year-old man about one mile up from the Lahaina side of the trail.  The man, described as a local resident, was carried in a stokes basket to an awaiting ambulance for further care, according to Val Martin, Assistant Chief of Support Services for the Maui Department of Fire and Public Safety.
