A 23-years man who died in a Yellowstone National Park hot spring back in June, and dissolved when he fell into the boiling, acidic water, was looking to soak in the water.

Park officials said in a report, which followed a Freedom of Information Act, a request made by KULR, found that Colin Scott, was  apparently looking for a place to “hot pot, ” or soak in the streaming waters in Norris Geyser basin, a practice forbidden by the park.

Victim’s sister recorded the incident on her cell phone. Park official told KULR,  “… they were specifically moving in that area for a place that they could potentially get into and soak. I think they call it Hot Potting.”

He “was reaching down to check the temperature of a hot spring when he slipped and fell into the pool, ” his sister Sable Scott told investigators.

Rescue rangers who arrived later found Scott’s body in the pool, along with his wallet and flip flops, but a lightning storm stopped the recovery efforts their recovery efforts. The next day, they could’nt find any remains. The acidic water dissolved all the remains.

“In a very short order, there was a significant amount of dissolving, ” Deputy Chief Ranger Lorant Veress told KULR.
