      The story was somewhat misleading. It makes it sound like the person fell into a pit of roiling lava and survived. For starters, there’s currently no volcanic activity anywhere on the island. What the guy did was step over a well-marked guard rail and the crumbly cliff edge gave way beneath him. He could have fallen 300 feet, but landed on a ledge 70 feet down. He survived because rescuers performed a tricky and dangerous rescue in the dark. The headline should read something more like, ‘Stupid man trespasses and falls off cliff, but survives to do something else dumb another day.’ This is why I’m not a newspaper editor!
