I can't help thinking that if this had occurred at a different stage of history, it would almost certainly have been attributed to supernatural agency:

Hawaii man dies after falling down lava tube in his garden

A man in Hawaii has died after falling down a "lava tube" - a tunnel formed by volcanic eruptions - while trimming trees on his property.

Police say the 71-year-old had apparently fallen about 22ft (7m) "through a soft area of ground".

Lava tubes are formed when lava cools and hardens on its top layer but continues to drain and cool beneath.

Police say the man was found on Monday after friends reported that they had not heard from him for days.
