I had a chance Today to review the documentary “Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaii’s Sacred Tree” on KGMB Hawaii CBS.  What a life enlightenment to say the least. This is a must see no matter what part of the world you live in.

I am sure the world does not know of the plague that has hit the OHIA Trees on the Big Island of Hawaii. A forest of sticks instead of trees. This is a very dangerous situation for the ecosystem. Birds, bees and other wild life depend on the Ohia Tree.

Hawaii Invasive Species Council:  Rapid  ʻŌhiʻa Death Continues Marching Across Hawai‘i Island

For the past few years now the death of Ohia forest after forest has become a great concern to the locals. As you can see from photos that the Ohia tree is a large part of the forest species on The Big Island of Hawaii.

Hawaii’s DLNR website for Rapid Ohia Death has many articles and pictures. Please read and become familiar with the struggle of saving the Ohia Trees.

 

A new documentary is being released August and September with the islands.

Investigators combing the wreckage of a charter plane that crashed in Colombia found a sixth survivor under the aircraft’s fuselage Tuesday morning, officials said. Video from the scene showed rescuers carrying a man on a stretcher away from the crash site.

At least 75 people were killed in the deadly crash, Medellin Mayor Federico Gutiérrez said. Passengers on the charter flight included players from the Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense, who were on their way to Colombia to compete in the first leg of the South American Cup finals. More than 20 journalists were also aboard the aircraft.

Colombia plane crash: 75 dead, 6th survivor found

Rescuers search the wreckage of the charter plane Tuesday in mountains outside Medellin, Columbia. The Avro RJ85 was en route Monday night from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, to Medellin when it crashed near Rionegro, Colombia, civil aviation officials said. Nine crew members were also on board.

The plane declared an emergency between the municipalities of La Ceja and La Union, according to Colombian aviation officials. The crash occurred in an area called Cerro El Gordo near Medellin, officials said.

At least three soccer players, two crew members and one journalist survived, authorities said. Among them: defender Alan Luciano Ruschel. In an Instagram post, Ruschel’s wife said he was hospitalized in stable condition. “We are praying for everyone who has not yet been rescued, and for their families,” Amanda Ruschel wrote. “It is a complicated and difficult situation. Only God can give us strength.”

What happened?
The plane took off from Bolivia’s Viru Viru International Airport at 6:18 p.m. local time, according to air controller Manuel Palamas.

Medical staff members wait for survivors of the crashed plane Tuesday at a hospital near Medellin. Officials didn’t specify what happened to the plane but said the wounded were being transported to medical centers.

Images of the crash show what appear to be damaged parts of the plane. The aviation department’s statement said that passengers belonged to the Chapecoense team. Tattered debris emblazoned with the club’s logo was photographed at the crash site. READ MORE AT CNN
