LIHUE, Hawaii -  Most of the travel guides describe it as ” a glorious hidden place” and a ” swimming hole extraordinaire”, but several were the people who died in this place.

5 tourists drowned at Kipu Falls in the past 5 years. Usually the visitors jump off the waterfall into the pool, roughly 20 feet deep.

Though this has been proved to be dangerous, several had chest injuries and sprained ankles, others have been pulled away by the whirpool current, and a teen was paralyzed.
