Watch: 'Lord of Rings' Volcano Blows Its Top

NZ schoolteacher says it was a 'a bit scary' as people ran for cover

Auckland schoolteacher Paul Cowan was less than a mile away from New Zealand's Mount Tongariro on Wednesday when it started erupting - and he caught the whole thing on film. (Note strong language). "It was fantastic but it was actually a bit scary and everyone started running," he told the New Zealand Herald.

The mountain is located in Tongariro National Park, the backdrop for many scenes in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
