HONOLULU (AP) - A woman killed in a weekend fall along Kaau Crater Trail was a 23-year-old University of Hawaii graduate student.

The state medical examiner says Kaitlan Prugger died Saturday when she fell 30 to 35 feet into a waterfall pool along the trail in Palolo.

The death was classified as accidental.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Prugger was hiking with two others above the first waterfall on the trail.

A Honolulu Fire Department report says Prugger tried to take a picture looking down the falls and apparently lost her footing.
