Soldier survives 70-foot fall into active Hawaiia's Kilauea volcano

A 32-year-old soldier attempting to get a better view inside of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano fell in Wednesday night, authorities said. He was seriously injured, but survived after falling 70 feet into the volcano's crater.
According to parks spokesman Ben Hayes, the man climbed over the permanent metal railing at the Steaming Bluff overlook to look into the crater when the ground collapsed beneath him.

The soldier whose name has not been released is from Schofield Barracks on Oahu, but was taking part in training exercises on Hawaii's Big Island when the accident occurred.

Rescuers from the park and county were able to rappel down to the ledge, secure the man onto a stretcher and bring him back up, where he was airlifted to the Hilo Medical Center.
"Visitors should never cross safety barriers, especially around dangerous and destabilized cliff edges," Chief Ranger John Broward said in a statement. Crossing safety barriers and entering closed areas can result in serious injuries and death."

Actually, according to the headline Hawaiia is active.
But I wonder about something else.
Had the idiot been a Nurse, or parking lot attendant or movie usher, would their employer have been noted?

Why is it when someone with even the most obscure military connection does something stupid, their connection to the military is always mentioned?
Edit: Also, I see that the idiots name has yet to be released.
One wonder's if it's because his name is Joe?
