The only thing I really know about Old Faithful is that it can/will erupt with boiling hot water every hour or so. So why would a person stand so close to this scorching geyser? Good question.

An unidentified man was filmed standing then laying down next to the steaming hole. Witnesses were not sure if he planned to jump in. Footage of the man was captured by Michigan resident Ashley Lemanski of Harbor Beach. According to reports Yellowstone National Park Rangers yelled for him to step away. Once he did finally walk away, he was confronted and ticketed.

Have you ever been to Yellowstone National Park to see Old Faithful? If so, I am guessing you did not get as close as this clown. I am one for not always following the rules, but not going near boiling hot water is a rule I would definitely follow.
