A 32-year-old soldier, straining to get a better view of the inside of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, was seriously injured after he fell from a 300-foot-high cliff into the volcano crater.

According to a parks spokesman, the man climbed over a metal guardrail to get a better vantage point. Then the ground beneath him collapsed.

To bad he hit that ledge. He almost made it into the very short list of those sacrificed to Pele! And voluntarily, no less.

He almost got a prized Darwin Award. That's kind of like the Nobel Prize for improving the human gene pool.
