“Water levels in the East Maui streams are very low this year making jumping from the falls extremely hazardous,” said Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.

The man was carried out of the stream area by fire personnel, and transported by ambulance to the hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.

The incident was reported at 4:24 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14, 2012.  Among those responding to the scene were fire and rescue crews from Engine 2 in Paia, and Rescue 10 in Kahului.
