A spectacular sight draws people to a Hawaiian volcano park and tourists are warned of the dangers they can’t see.

Lava from the Kilauea volcano is flowing into the ocean and thousands of people are flocking to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see if for themselves.

Most people know not to touch the lava, but may not be as careful where they step.

Lava entering the sea builds a platform of new land known as lava delta.

The deltas are incredibly unstable and prone to collapse unexpectedly.

People are advised to wear hiking shoes, long pants a long-sleeve shirt and gloves in case of a fall.
