Most of us have witnessed volcanoes in movies or documentaries. Some of us have also done model volcano school projects when we were kids. But have you ever wondered what happens when a person falls into a volcano? Sounds weird, right? But a simulation of what would happen if a person fell into a lava lake is going viral on the internet. Don’t worry, no one fell into the volcano for the purpose of the video.
An old video has been re-shared on Twitter, demonstrating an experimental drop involving a 30-kilogram package of organic waste (which is similar to human physiology and will elicit the same response) at Erta Ale, an active volcano in Ethiopia, to simulate What happens if a human falls into it?
The video shows that the first layer of solidified ash that forms on top of the molten lava breaks up and submerges the organic matter as it enters the lava lake. Bubbles from the lava fountain are then seen and grow in response to breaking.

One user wrote: “Okay, I think I need to use this when teaching causation because “sometimes small actions have big consequences…”
“Volcanoes can cause death from toxic gases, people who suffer from asthma should be careful. Gases coming out of volcanoes include carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide,” another person said.
Originally, Photovolcanica, which is maintained by geothermal enthusiasts, shared a longer video of it on YouTube. In the caption, the user wrote: “It is frequently discussed whether it is possible to sink into lava. Due to its high density, a person is generally expected to remain on the surface. In fact, it is possible to briefly walk on certain types “. of lava if professional heat protective clothing is worn (do not try this yourself).
He further explained that the experiment was carried out using a cardboard box filled with camp waste (mostly food scraps) that weighed 30 kilograms and had dimensions of 60x60x60 cm. The fall height is approximately 80 meters. The lake erupts with violent lava spring activity, due to steam produced by organic matter.
