Man walks into lava despite signs

A 75 year old man willingly walked past barriers surrounding the Killauea volcano, because he wanted a better look at the lava.

We have a few HM's in the slush pile involving people and volcanos/lava but I'm not finding any actual DA's so I'm willing to accept this. Thanks!
