Woman in critical condition after falling below cliff on Maui

A 24-year-old woman was in critical condition Friday after falling below a cliff overlooking Jaws surfbreak in Peahi, Maui firefighters said.

The woman was walking with another woman down a trail leading to the shoreline at about 12:40 p.m. when she slipped and fell about 20 feet down a steep incline, said Maui Fire Department spokesman Edward Taomoto.

Responding firefighters found the woman at the bottom of a steep 40-foot slope below the surfbreak lookout.

Firefighters picked up the woman with a helicopter and took her to Valley Isle Memorial Park where she was transferred to paramedics. She was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition.

Taomoto said the woman is from New York City, but living short-term in Wailuku.
