A Hana man suffered fatal injuries during a miscellaneous accident on Lanai, according to Maui Police.

Authorities identified the man as 22-year-old Zachary Moloney of Hana.

Maui police say the individual was camping with his friends in an area near Shark’s Bay by Pu’u Pehe (Sweetheart Rock) on the south side of Lanai.

Friends who were on the camping trip reported last seeing the man at around 11 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, 2012, according to Maui Police Lt. Wayne Ibarra.

At around 7:20 a.m., the man’s friends went looking for him and found the body at the base of a 100 foot cliff at Shark’s Bay, said Lt. Ibarra.

Because of the difficulty ground crews had in accessing the area, police called the Maui Fire Department’s Air-1 helicopter to recover the body.

There was no foul play suspected and the case has been classified as a miscellaneous accident.
