2. your phone drops into crater and you go after it [ is it worth dying for a phone? ]


U.S. tourist, 23, falls into Mount Vesuvius crater after taking a selfie — and survives

The tourist on Saturday dropped his phone into the volcano crater, which is nearly 1,000 feet deep, and got stuck going after it. Guides used a long rope to pull him to safety.

....A 23-year-old American man was rescued over the weekend after falling into the crater of Mount Vesuvius in Italy while taking a selfie.

The man visited the famed volcano, notorious for destroying the Roman city of Pompeii and blanketing it in ash in 79 A.D, with two family members on Saturday.

The family hiked up Vesuvius from the town of Ottaviano and accessed the top of the volcano through a forbidden trail, Paolo Cappelli, the president of the Presidio Permanente Vesuvio, a base at the top of Vesuvius where guides operate from, told NBC News over the phone.

"This family took another trail, closed to tourists, even if there was a small gate and 'no access' signs," Cappelli said.

When the family reached the top of the over 4,000-feet high volcano, the man stopped to take a selfie and his phone fell into the crater.

“He tried to recover it, but slipped and slid a few meters into the crater. He managed to stop his fall, but at that point he was stuck," Cappelli said.

"He was very lucky. If he kept going, he would have plunged 300 meters into the crater,” he added.

Vesuvius' cone-shaped crater has a depth of 300 meters, or nearly 1,000 feet, and a diameter of 450 meters, or nearly 1,500 feet.

Carroll suffered scratches and cuts to his arms and back in the fall.

Guides from Presidio Permanente Vesuvio saw what happened with binoculars from the opposite side of the rim and rushed to help Carroll. They used a long rope to pull him to safety.

A video shared on Instagram on Sunday, posted by someone who appears to be Carroll’s brother, shows the view from the top of Vesuvius. A voice is heard saying, “We hiked to the top of a literal f------ volcano!”

Carroll was taken into custody by the local Carabinieri police, Cappelli said.

It's not immediately clear what charges he faces.



Darwin......award......?!

Glad he's ok, doesn't appear to be very fit for climbing out of a volcano.
The pandemic gave the world a break from American tourist stunts, but we're back!

I have to disagree with you here. After such GROSS stupidity, a better lesson to others would be if he got TOTALLY bar-b-qued. Death can fix stupid and, be a really good object lesson to others.
