People all over the world have gone crazy about Pokemon Go, so much so that they are not paying attention to what’s happening around them. Two men in Encinitas, California were playing the game and were so invested in it that they didn’t pay attention to the cliff right in front of them and fell off.
Multiple rescue teams had to arrive on the scene to retrieve them. Fortunately, none of them died, but both are seriously injured and may lose one of their limbs.
There is no doubt that the game is addictive, but it is certainly not worth risking your life or limbs. Unfortunately, people are playing it so blindly that different states had to put up signs to urge people to not get lost in the game and pay attention to what’s happening around them.
This has been the major downside of the app since its launch. It has become one of the biggest reasons behind traffic jams, and is responsible for multiple accidents and fights in different regions.
If you want to play Pokemon Go, then do so by all means, but make sure that while playing, you are not putting yours or anyone else’s safety at risk.
