Greg – I totally agree.
Lava hurling through the air is something which happens during eruptions.
I hope the tourists had to sign a waiver. If they did than how unexpected was it?

“That is not a freak accident.”
Well, from a probability point of view, the likelihood of that particular chunk hitting that particular boat would be freakishly low.
But yeah, the spewing of the “lava bombs” isn’t a surprise.
