HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The woman who fell hundreds of feet off a Koolau ridge is now in fair condition at the Queens Medical Center.

Agnes Bryant of Mililani was taken to the hospital on Tuesday in extremely critical condition.  

She was with two men on an extreme trail called the "Pali Notches" near the Nuuanu Pali Lookout.  One of the hikers says she was trying to get around a large boulder when the ground gave way and she fell more than 300 hundred feet. The hiker says when Bryant hit the bottom; they could hear her screaming in pain.

Bryant reportedly had surgery Wednesday for a broken left arm and wrist and has some neck and spine fractures.

She reportedly is not paralyzed.

One of the men she was hiking with says she is talking and in good spirits.
