HONOLULU (AP) - Officials have identified a teenager who died after collapsing during a hike in the Pearl City area.

The medical examiner's office has not yet determined the cause of 18-year-old Michael Almerol's death. An autopsy on the Ewa Beach victim will be performed Tuesday.

Almerol had been hiking with a friend on Sunday on the Manana Trail, also known as Waimano Falls, when he collapsed. Witnesses had called for help and he was taken to the hospital where he later died.
