LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Maui officials say a 30-year-old man visiting from California died after falling off a cliff.

Maui firefighters say they responded shortly afternoon noon on Wednesday to a call about the fall at Nakalele (NAH'-kah-LEH'-leh) Point in west Maui.

Bystanders directed medics to the blowhole area where the man apparently fell 30 feet onto the rocks.

A helicopter airlifted the man to a landing zone near the highway but he was pronounced dead after being loaded into an ambulance.

Maui police identified the man as Dominic Reginatto of Redding, Calif.

Two years ago, a 44-year-old California man was sucked to his apparent death at the Nakalele blowhole. Witnesses saw a large wave push the man into the hole. He popped up briefly with the next wave but then disappeared.
