Tree falls at Kanaha
FIRST PHOTO: A large part of a tree on the northeast end of Kanaha Beach Park cracked and fell onto the beach and into the water, slightly injuring at least one person on Friday afternoon, according to a witness and county officials.
SECOND PHOTO: The tree landed on the middle of a beach blanket and crushed a baby stroller and some beach toys, said a witness, who wanted to be identified only as M. Louis. She said that one woman had scratches on her back because she threw herself over two children playing near her, she said. Another child had an ankle injury. Maui County spokesman Rod Antone confirmed the incident and one nonserious injury. He said that police, the county arborist and county attorneys were on the scene.
