It doesn't seem possible that someone could fall into an active volcano and survive, but that's what happened this week in Hawaii.
Officials at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park say a man was rescued after falling into the active Kilauea volcano. They say he climbed over a metal railing to get a better look from a 300-foot cliff, lost his footing and fell. He landed 70 feet below on a narrow ledge.
A search team found the man more than two hours later. He was alive but suffered serious injuries.
I know I should feel bad for this guy (and I guess I do...a little), but he intentionally climbed over a railing that was meant to keep guests safe. It's safe to say he did this to himself, right? Does that make me a bad person?
In all sincerity, I'm glad he survived, and he's expected to make a recovery...but this was completely avoidable!
