(AP) - Maui officials say a 30-year-old Redding 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 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 but firefighters say he was pronounced dead after being loaded into an ambulance.

Maui police identified the man as Dominic Reginatto of Redding.

Nakalele Point is notorious for being one of the most dangerous places to visit in Hawaii. 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.
