Stowing Away I stood between two facing mirrors & almost caught a glimpse of infinity, but my bloody head kept getting in the way

My wife and I climbed Mount Vesuvius and the view was breath taking. There is nothing more exciting then for one to stand at the mouth of an active Volcano with one’s head in the clouds looking down at the cities and towns below. The plaster mounds of those who died trying to escape the wrath of Mount Vesuvius will send chills up one’s spine

How did the people actually turn into plaster moulds ?
It is a sad story
