At the gift stores in Yellowstone you can buy a book called "Death in Yellowstone" or something like that, and it details all manner of grisly demise that has been recorded in the park. I can't remember them now, but one that stuck in my mind was the guy whose dog jumped into a pool. When the dog began to cook, the guy jumped in after him to rescue him. They got the guy out but very quickly realized his skin was falling off. 

Actually knew someone whose brother died at the park in the 70s when he slipped into a pool. At the time they didn't have rails up, and part of the settlement was NPS would add railings.

@Scott hot potting sounds fun.
 
Most of the pools and features at Yellowstone do not have rails. Really, only the ones where you're in real danger of being bumped by another tourist, or the boardwalk itself is likely to be slippery.
 
There used to be more easily-accessible warm water soaking areas but most of them have been shut down. The one below is out of sight of most tourists so it doesn't spoil their experience to see so many ill-advised speedos. It's closed after dark now so no funny stuff. ha ha ha ah ha ha.

There are some in the backcountry that are well vetted as safe and lovely. Best I've been to is at Union Falls.

(Horrible) shit happens, but the Darwin part was he was actually thinking he could soak in that spring. He fell in while trying to check the temperature*. Guess he didn't also have any litmus paper along, because he would have been et up even at 100°F.

The sister was videoing him. She's never going to be the same. 
 
*The ones that are potentially okay to soak in are usually super mossy and gross. The crystal clear ones you can see to the bottom of: I wouldn't test the temperature with your toe.
 
The article says "the springs are fenced off..." No they're not. A few are, but most of them are just there. Waiting.
 
It also mocks hot potting. Sorry. It's great. We were in the "Boiling River" area in Yellowstone last October. A (cold) mountain river, the boiling (too hot to sit in) river empties in and you sit in the mixed zone. 


 
 

 
Clear cold < warm slimy < hot less slimy (may or may not kill you) < opalescent from silica precipitation (will kill you easily) < clear hot (will kill you quicker)

I soaked in the river near Mammoth a long time ago. It was a cool place to be as the sun set. Someone needs to develop a body-rotisserie to even the heating, though.

Frequently when one ignores obvious dangers and generous warnings to stf away from something, yes.

On the other hand I had a caver friend who liked to open up new passages and wanted to do it safely. He said, "I can buy enough chemicals to level this town but they won't give my a blaster's license."
