Man seriously injured in Big Island waterfall jump
Hawaii News Now
HILO, Hawaii (AP) – A 37-year-old man was seriously injured when he jumped down an 80-foot waterfall.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

Thanks to AP and www.hawaiinewsnow for this report.  You’d think the victim would have learned by now that Rainbow Falls is a very dangerous area to dive or swim in.  Police identified the victim as Samson Perez, aka Samson Moses Kahumokuthe, the son of Grammy-award winning slack-key guitarist Moses Kahumoku.  Police say Perez lost sensation in the lower part of his body after the bad dive.  He underwent surgery on Tuesday in Honolulu.  I hope he recovers. This is a bad way to learn a lesson.  Aloha, Russ.
