Donations being accepted for family of boy killed in Maui fall

Posted: Updated:

HANA, Hawaii (AP) - A 12-year-year San Diego boy visiting Maui is dead after falling about 250 feet from a cliff while sightseeing.

Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga says Cristian Lopez was traveling with his family Sunday along a winding and scenic route to Hana that's popular among tourists. The family stopped at a cliff along Honomanu Bay when he fell into the ocean.

Lopez, who attended Chula Vista Middle School, was brought to shore but attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

According to reports, the boy ran towards the side of the cliff, looked over and fell.

Mainaga says the cliff is a popular tourist spot but it's not considered an official scenic lookout and has no guard rails.

A fund has been set up to help the family.
