Lava tunnels (or lava tube) — voids formed by lava during volcanic eruptions.
They occur when lava hardens on the surface and within the stream continues to flow and hardens later — between the two levels creates a tunnel.
Unlike caves, are formed over hundreds and thousands of years, lava tubes occur a few days or months, say geologists.
In Hawaii, which are volcanic Islands, lava during movement to the ocean left behind a whole maze of tunnels, the length of which may exceed 60 km.

The tunnel, which fell dead, arose under his garden, most likely, many years ago, but the man did not know of the danger.
