HONOLULU – A 28-year-old Las Vegas woman is in critical condition after she hit a rocky hill while swinging on a rope at Kipu Falls on Kauai.
The woman is due to be airlifted to The Queen’s Medical Center on Oahu.
Kauai County said in a Friday news release that the woman intended to land in the pool beneath the falls but failed to let go of the rope.
Instead, she hit the side of a hill and fell into the water. Friends and bystanders helped bring her to the water’s edge.
