Seneca Falls Woman Alive After Falling Off a Cliff in Hawaii

A 19-year-old Seneca County woman says she's glad to be alive after surviving a 60-foot fall off a cliff in Hawaii.

Marissa Peone of Seneca Falls, who's in Hawaii for one semester, tells Hawaii News Now that she and a friend researched Kaau Crater Trail in Oahu's Palolo Valley but did not see anything indicating how dangerous it is.

Last week a 23-year-old University of Hawaii graduate student died in a fall there. Peone says she reached the first waterfall and was climbing to look over the edge when she lost her footing. She suffered only some brusies. 

Peone tells Hawaii News Now "Words cannot explain how lucky I feel right now. I just keep imagining myself falling off and dying."
