Swimming in the Lava Zone #LavaSwimming #Hawaii

"According to USGS experts, this is even more dangerous than it looks. 
But Hawaii native Kawika Singson looks right at home swimming next to the lava zone on Hawaii's Big Island. 
The video Singson posted on YouTube shows steam coming off the rocks as the water comes into contact with the hot lava.
Conditions weren't exactly calm that day. As each wave hits, Singson was thrashed around, often getting far too close for comfort to the lava zone.
Experts advise you should never get too close to a lava zone because the steam it emits when it mixes with water can be harmful to your health."
