Boiled Alive in Acid at Yellowstone: The Tragic Tale of Colin Scott
In June of 2016, siblings Colin and Sable Scott visited Yellowstone National Park together. The Scotts departed from one of the main paths through the park and entered the basin, an area visitors are prohibited from entering. Colin Scott, who was 23, wanted to take a dip in one of the park’s many hot springs. Colin went to the edge of one of the hot springs to test the water. Sable stood back so that she could take a cell phone video of her brother. To her horror, Colin slipped as he tried to dip his toes into the water to check the temperature. Sable witnessed her brother almost instantly dissolve in the boiling, acidic water. All that remained of Colin were the flip flops that he took off before testing the water.Superheated water.
