Pictures Released From My Zipine Trip With KapohoKine Three Months BEFORE the Death at Honoli’i Mountain Outpost

Investigators have now stated that the  platform that collapsed on the September 21st zip line accident that happened at KapohoKine’s Honoli’i Outpost killing a Maui resident who had been working on the lines, had previously collapsed two months previously before the incident.

One of the workers rides over line four back in June

The Hawaii Tribune stated:

A pair of stabilizing anchors failed to keep a zip line platform from collapsing, killing one worker and critically injuring another on Sept. 21, according to a police report.

Additionally, contractors working on the project told police that the same zip line — Line No. 8 at the Honolii Mountain Outpost course recently built for Hilo-based eco-tourism company KapohoKine Adventures — had experienced a similar collapse prior to the accident that claimed the life of 36-year-old worker Ted Callaway…

The Maui News reported that the platform previously collapsed TWO months before the accident:

A police report says the Big Island zipline tower that collapsed and sent a worker plunging to his death had experienced a similar collapse eight weeks prior...

I had previously been up to Honoli’i Mountain outpost about THREE months before the accident when I rode the first four lines.  The other lines were still being constructed.

So basically what this tells me… is that the platform collapsed the first time about a month after it was built and ready to be ridden as I was there three months before the accident and they weren’t completed yet.

I only published a few of the pictures I took three months ago on my site previously.  Now that more information is coming out… I figured I would publish the rest of the pictures from my June 16th zip line trip with KapohoKine at the Honoli’i Outpost.
