Kilauea eruption claims first injuryOfficials in Hawaii have confirmed the first lava-related injury stemming from the eruptions at Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island.

A "lava bomb" struck a man's leg Saturday as he stood on the porch of a home near a fissure, Talmadge Magno, Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator, told Hawaii Tribune-Herald.

"It hit him on the shin, and shattered everything from there down on his leg," county spokeswoman Janet Snyder told Hawaii News Now. The Honolulu-based TV station said it was the first lava-related injury from the Kilauea volcano.
