Why were people on White Island volcano when it erupted?

People have been asking if we ever toured White Island. The answer is no. It's not my kind of risk to take, walking around an active volcano.  Seductive online marketing (embedded in the first link below) makes it look like a walk in the park, but there are hundreds of other NZ parks to hike that aren't sitting on the edge of an active volcano.

White Island attracts 10,000 visitors annually 

Here's a link that also includes a press conference updating the situation as of 6:30 am Monday.
