Man suffers horrific death after being ‘dissolved’ at Yellowstone – this will leave you terrified

This man met a horrific end in the United States after attempting to “hot pot” at Yellowstone National Park. The stunning national park is well-known for its breathtaking scenery as well as its naturally occurring hot springs, however they may be extremely dangerous.

Because Yellowstone is home to one of the world’s largest magma chambers, the surface water of the hot springs is naturally very near boiling.

There are multiple warnings warning people not to approach the hot springs too closely as it could be lethal. The hot springs are walled off.

It was thus surprising that Colin Scott and his sister Sable Scott intended to participate in “hot potting,” the illegal practice of submerging oneself in a hot spring, when they traveled to the park.

“[They] were specifically moving in that area for a place that they could potentially get into and soak,” Deputy Chief Ranger Lorant Veress told KULR at the time.

It seems that Sable’s brother slipped into the water while checking the temperature with his finger when she was photographing Colin and her “deliberately” leaving the boardwalk at Norris Geyser Basin.

According to the report, “the smartphone recorded the moment he slipped and fell into the pool and her efforts to rescue him.” Since there was no mobile service in the region, Sable is said to have returned to a local museum to seek assistance.

Authorities found Colin’s body floating in the water a few hours later, but they were forced to give up trying to save it due to a downpour. When they returned the following day, everything had disappeared from the young man except his flip-flops and wallet.

The waters had been particularly corrosive on the day Colin met his untimely end, according to Veress’s event report. He wrote, “There was a significant amount of dissolving in a very short order.”

The surface temperatures of Yellowstone’s geothermal ponds and pools reach an astounding 199°F (93°C), while the temperatures below are even hotter.

It is recommended by the National Park Service that tourists stick to trails or boardwalks that cross thermal zones. Warnings on the website state that hot springs in Yellowstone have caused more injuries and deaths than any other natural feature.

That was an awful experience, and if Colin and his sister had paid attention to the warnings, they may have avoided it.
