  • This screen grab from a video posted on social media by a passenger aboard the lava tour boat "Hot Spot" on July 16, 2018, shows lava entry from the boat just prior to the explosion.

The family of an Illinois woman seriously injured last July when a “lava bomb” tore through the roof of a tour boat off Kapoho is suing the tour company and its owner in state court.
