Soldier survives 70-foot fall into active Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano

According to parks spokesman, the man climbed over the permanent metal railing at the Steaming Bluff overlook to look into the crater when the ground collapsed beneath him. Another visitor witnessed the fall around 6:30 p.m. and alerted authorities. The man wasn’t pulled out from the caldera until around 9:40 p.m. Instead of falling 300 feet, he landed on a narrow ledge about 70 feet down.

Not sure it was his fault if the ground collapsed under him. He has a good guarding angel.

Stay on designated paths and dont climb over railings people... unless you want your death to be a joke that millions laugh at.

I’m not sure they should save people like this, mostly for the IQ of future generations.
