The nature of Hawaii’s volcanos means that the lava generally flows in ways that people can avoid quite easily, so injuries directly related to eruptions are rare these days. There are plenty of hiker injuries from walking on solidified lava, however.
There are reports of a death at Kiluea in 1993 as a result of collapse of solidified lava, throwing a tourist into the ocean.
On March 15, 2011, a new fissure erupted on the side of Kilauea with a curtain of fire that rose eighty feet into the air. Nobody was harmed however, as the area had been cleared for that very reason. The plume emitted a good deal of sulfur dioxide, which is harmful if inhaled. There are no reports of injuries.
