A young man visiting from Germany is banged up but lucky to be alive this morning. He fell about 30 feet from the top of a waterfall in Maui’s Bamboo Forest Friday evening.
At 5:58 p.m., Maui Department fire fighters and rescue crews from Pa’ia were dispatched to the scene. They reached the victim – who suffered injuries to his chin, jaw and elbow. After securing him, Air-1 was brought in to fly the victim to a prepared landing zone. He was then transported by Maui Medevac air to Maui Memorial Medical Center in stable condition.
