Rope-swinging woman critically injured

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.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
