YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Rangers are searching for a man who reportedly fell into a hot spring at Yellowstone National Park.

Someone reported seeing a man in his early 20s walk off the boardwalk in the Norris Geyser Basin area Tuesday and fall into the thermal spring about 225 yards away. Rangers say the man probably died because he has not been located.

No other information was released.

On Saturday, a 13-year-old boy was burned around his ankle and foot after his father, who had been carrying him, slipped in the park’s Upper Geyser Basin hot spring.

Some springs in Yellowstone can reach temperatures close to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
