On Saturday, Japanese hikers had to run for their lives as a volcanic eruption clouded their surroundings.
The Mount Ontake eruption injured dozens of hikers and has even stranded a few dozen more. The footage shared by Kuroda Terutoshi shows the ash cloud descending on him and others.
According to Business Insider,
More than 30 people have been found on Sunday in a state of “cardiopulmonary” arrest near the peak of the Japanese volcano that erupted on Saturday, NHK national news said, without specifying they have died.
Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe has ordered a military rescue team for the hikers who have remained trapped by the eruption and has said:
Im instructed to do all we can to rescue the people affected and secure the safety of the trekkers.
2007 was the last time Mount Ontake erupted. We pray for the people of Japan.
