We're re-releasing former co-host Cameron Dexter's detailed account of the 2019 White Island Volcano disaster, in coincidence with yesterday's release of "The Volcano: Rescue from Whakaari" on Netflix. "Survivors' and rescuers' accounts and minute-by-minute footage fuel this gripping documentary about the deadly 2019 volcanic eruption in New Zealand."-Netflix
Cam covers the fatal eruption of the New Zealand White Island volcano on December 9, 2019. Forty-seven adventurous souls said yes to a once in a lifetime opportunity to hike to the crater of a beautiful volcano in a remote paradise. What they didn't know is that they were hiking straight into the belly of the beast – an active volcano that had just been elevated in eruption risk. But no one told the tourists of the extra risk that they'd be taking that day, and only 25 of them would survive to tell the horrific tale.
