Is that area known to be a dangerous place. I come to realize that everywhere in Hawaii is a dangerous place but does that river have a reputation like the boiling pots area?

area is real deep gulches, steep gulches. very isolated, very natural. say he called for help for 5 days and then starved and passed on the 7 day and got found on the 12 day. No one hear his call for help since it is isolated. Big Island is natural, nature is powerful.

The big island is Beautiful because so many area are untouched. but that make it also very dangerous. tourist some times leave the main roads and trails to seek out the beauty and that when they get in trouble. thing is they also found his car in the river his body was 100 yards down river from his car
