A visitor from Maryland, who reportedly jumped about 30 feet into a pond at Twin Falls, was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center in stable condition Tuesday afternoon.
Responding to a 4:10 p.m. alarm, Paia firefighters hiked up the trail in Haiku and found a 52-year-old woman at the pool named "Caveman." She was lying in the water under the waterfall, complaining of pain to her lower back, said Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.
A friend of the woman from Whitehall, Md., said the woman jumped about 30 feet into the pond and landed on her back in the water, according to Mainaga. She did not hit rocks during the fall and did not lose consciousness.
Firefighters secured the woman on a backboard and loaded her into a stokes basket, Mainaga said. She was carried about a quarter mile to an ambulance and transported to the hospital.
