A woman who was not identified entered Yellowstone National Park while it was closed during the Coronavirus outbreak. Officials said she was backpacking and taking photos near the Old Faithful geyser when she fell into a hot spring or hole with gases.

Although she had serious burns from her fall, the woman was able to drive 50 miles before Yellowstone park rangers pulled her over. Park officials didn't release the extent of her injuries but she was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Idaho.
