Apparently The Volcano Beat Joe

The body of a 75-year old man was recovered from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, after he moved to a closed section and fell to his death.

Authorities on Hawaii’s Big Island have recovered the body of a 75-year-old man who is believed to have fallen from a closed area of Hawaii Volcanoes national park, where visitors in past months have been trying to get a glimpse of a glowing lava lake from an eruption of the Kilauea volcano.

Family members had reported the man missing from the park early on Monday, the National Park Service said. Officials believe the accident occurred late on Sunday evening.

Park rangers and firefighters had searched through the night to locate the missing man, and eventually recovered his body 100ft (30.48m) below the crater rim of the Uēkahuna viewing area at the summit of the Kilauea volcano.

Why anyone would visit an active volcano is beyond me, especially the elderly. It’s a shame about the man, but good grief, where were his family members?

  1. Having been to Hawaii and toured the big island of Hawaii when a volcano was active, I honestly don’t know how he got past the sulfur smell. It is absolutely overwhelming. I couldn’t wait to get back to my hotel in Kona.

  2. It is a big park with plenty to see without going into the parts that are closed to the public. You would think at that age he would know better, but I guess not.

  3. Maybe he had the covid and couldn’t smell the sulfur? Wait I have a brilliantly evil (I mean wonderful) idea lets say that the sulfur smell and the heat are effective in fighting and giving immunity to Covid we might just thin the sheeple herds to a much smaller level and maybe appease whatever type of sacrifice is needed to remove the curse that started in 2020.
