A volcanoe once erupted on an Island that had 28,000 inhabitants. All of those people died as they had no means to escape from the Island. EXCEPT two people that lived. How did they manage to live where eveyone else died?:? :?
(This is a true story by the way so some of you may of heard of it.)

Salam.

Where the two people perhaps the only two people who had a means of exit?

Or where they in a plane flying above?

Or working on skyscraper?

I think you're going to have to tell us. It's an odd riddle, too many possibilities and not enough parameters.

They fell into a pit, and the entrance to the pit was high up so the lava couldn't get to them.

Yes but they were muderers so they were in a high security cell with mo windows or anything so the kava couldnt get in and they couldn't get out.

That's so weird. Wallahi, I considered saying 'they were in prison' but decided it was too stupid since it would be the same as if they were in a house. Aah, subhanallah.
