Firefighters rescued a 19-year-old man after he fell about 40 feet from a waterfall while hiking with friends in the Twin Falls area on Maui, a Fire Department spokesman said.

The man sustained cuts to his head, back and legs, but the injuries were not life-threatening, said Maui Fire Department  spokesman Lee Mainaga.

Firefighters carried the man out of the stream area about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, and paramedics took him to the hospital. 

Firefighters warned that streams in East Maui are very low this year, making jumping from the falls extremely hazardous.
