Most importantly; if someone thinks something might be dangerous, they should not go, it is simple. Also, no barrier is going to stop someone from hopping the barrier and walking over 200 yards off the path.
Right! You can see it in that very photo. See where the steam is? That's a danger area. See how THAT boardwalk has a railing?

What a horrifying experience for the victim, his family, and everyone there that day.
The pools in the far ground are steaming, and there's a railing. The pools in the foreground that are steaming are not under the boardwalk, but some distance away.

I would assume the death was similar to what a live lobster feels when it is boiled alive.

Probably trying to get a selfie or video to show off on social media. Everybody with any common sense knows that you don't leave the boardwalks in Yellowstone or go off trail in a remote area.

lol. Exactly.


What a hero! Think of the lives his stupidity saves!


They should erect some kind of monument: This is the site where a real idiot left the boardwalks and no tiny piece of him was ever seen again!

That some people cannot have the smallest amount of pity for a man who died a gruesome and incredibly painful death is far sadder and "stupider" to me. What a thing to mock and laugh at. Disgusting.
