Hikers Found Dead in Hawaii Park

Updated:
VOLCANO, Hawaii (AP) — The bodies of two hikers who authorities said may have bypassed posted warning signs were found near an active lava flow at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The victims were discovered Monday fully clothed with severe burns and cuts and abrasions to their heads, hands and knees, Ranger Doug Lentz said.

He said they apparently walked across a series of crusted lava flows that had been deposited in the area in the last decade. Hiking to the lava flow is permitted, but signs in the immediate area warn not to go farther, Lentz said.

The victims were identified as Ivan S. Klein, 42, of Washington, D.C., and Nancy Everett, 41, of Volcano.

Autopsies were to be performed to determine the cause of death.
