The 26-year-old US woman was hiking with friends when she stopped to admire the view from the top.

One simple slip on a rock and Heather Friesen was tumbling down a waterfall with mostly sharp rocks below.

A second earlier, she had stopped to admire the view along the Ka’au Crater Trail in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Moments later, she was groaning in severe pain after dropping 15 metres – she had 10 broken ribs, a collapsed lung, a fractured scapula and several deep wounds.

The GoPro footage she captured from the 2016 accident makes for horrifying viewing.

After a week of questions about a mysterious green patch at the bottom of the volcano’s Halemaumau crater, the former home of a famed lava lake, researchers confirmed the presence of water on Thursday, officials with the U.S. Geological Survey told The Associated Press on Friday.

… “The other possibility is that magma rises rapidly,” Swanson said. “That could produce a larger explosion.”
