An unknown man was seen in a viral video an attempt to wash his feet in the Yellowstone National Park geyser basins– a part of the park where people were boiled alive, a report said Monday.

The man jumped barricades and used the hot thermal springs to “themselves a foot spa,” the San Francisco Chronicle.

“Just as my family and I arrived at the thermal pool, we see that this boy cross over the barricades and head straight for the water,” the woman who recorded the video told the newspaper.

The basins are marked with signs warning visitors to stay, the report said.

“Everyone around us was shouting for him to get and to be careful. He didn’t look up and make eye contact with anyone. At one point, he took his shoes and socks off and tried his feet in the water,” said the woman.


Visitors were boiled alive in the park’s thermal springs, according to the paper in the printer. It was a man of presumed death in 2016 after a fall in a hot spring in the national park and could not be found.

The woman– who was not identified in the report– said he stayed behind the barricade for about 10 minutes before he returned to the track, the report said.

The average temperature of the water in a Yellowstone hot spring is 143 degrees, according to the National Park Service, but higher temperatures of geothermal activity are recorded, according to the Chronicle.
