HILO, Hawaii (AP) - Police have identified the Maui man killed while testing a Big Island zip line and his Ohio co-worker who was injured.
Police say Ted Callaway of Lahaina fell 200 feet to his death on a rocky stream Wednesday morning while riding the zip line. His co-worker, Curtis Wright, of Miamisburg, Ohio, remains in critical condition Thursday. Police say they're planning to send him to Honolulu via air ambulance.
County officials are investigating. Inspectors from the Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health division were at the site Thursday morning to begin a workplace fatality probe.
The men's employer, Experiential Resources, says they were doing maintenance work on the zip line after the course owner complained it was too slow.
Police said it doesn't appear the men were wearing protective headgear.
