MAUI (KRON) — Incredible drone footage shows how a majestic Hawaii waterfall can turn wildly dangerous in just seconds.
The video shows a man at the top of the 30-foot falls in Maui.
27-year-old Sean Steininger was going to jump, but then suddenly, a flash flood hits the area. He said it looked like a wave was coming.
He couldn’t hold onto the rocks any longer and was swept over. Friends said they thought he was dead.
But he actually emerged after about 5 or 6 seconds. The group was airlifted out.
The fire department said it was glad they weren’t pulling another dead body out.
