Kaua’i man sues over jump injury

LIHU’E (AP) — A Kaua’i man is suing the state, Kaua’i County and property

owners after he became disabled after jumping into a shallow cove on the

island’s North Shore.

Robert Landsell became a quadriplegic two years ago

when he dove head first into the shallow, rocky cove in Princeville known as

Queen’s Bath. Guide books list the location as one of the prettiest areas on

Kaua’i, and it’s a popular place for both residents and visitors. There is no

designated parking area, so users park on a residential street and walk down a

trail through private property to the beach. Kaua’i County has put up warning

signs since the incident, and considered closing the beach during the high-surf

winter months until being told the public must always be allowed shore
