Man’s body found inside vehicle at base of 100-foot cliff on Maui

A man’s body was recovered Monday at the bottom of a 100-foot cliff on Maui.

Crews responded to an area along Kahekili Highway near the Nakalele Lighthouse at around 4:50 p.m.

According to fire officials, an opihi picker came across a vehicle with a body inside. They believe the vehicle, a 2005 Toyota 4Runner, had gone off the cliff and plummeted to the rocky shoreline.

A helicopter airlifted the body to Kahekili Highway where it was transferred to police for investigation.

Police say the body could not be identified by family members, and an autopsy has been scheduled.
