Man found dead in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park


HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii (AP) — The body of a 75-year-old man has been found in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park after he apparently fell from a closed area late Sunday night on Hawaii’s Big Island. The National Park Service says family members reported the Hilo man missing from in the park early Monday. Rangers and firefighters searched for him in the dark and then found his body below the crater rim of a viewing area of Kilauea volcano. An investigation is underway. People have been visiting the park at night to get a glimpse of a glowing lava lake from an eruption of the volcano.
