Tourist dies at Yellowstone National Park after leaving boardwalk & falling into boiling, acidic spring

A ‘Touron’ pays the ultimate price!

The death of a tourist who left a boardwalk and fell into a boiling, acidic spring in Yellowstone National Park offers a sobering reminder that visitors need to follow the rules, park officials and observers said.

No significant human remains were left to recover after Colin Nathaniel Scott, a former nature preserve volunteer from Portland, Oregon, went off a designated pathway and slipped on some gravel and into the water in a geyser basin dotted with boiling hot springs, authorities said.
