HONOLULU (AP) — A man injured during a rockfall in a Hawaii state park is among five people cited for trespassing.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Thursday that officials cited Lincoln Hittner of Honolulu for trespassing in a closed park Tuesday.
Officials say Hittner was treated for minor injuries by Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement officers in Sacred Falls State Park.
Authorities say he was among a group of six that included Hawaii residents and a visiting Australian who all received citations.
Officials say the park has been closed and warning signs posted since a 1999 accident left eight people dead and dozens hurt.
The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says it has extensively publicized the dangers of entering closed areas, including a video about Sacred Falls.
