As per a news published in CNN today 16th July, 2016 Two men in their early 20s fell an estimated 50 to 90 feet down a cliff in Encinitas, California, on Wednesday afternoon while playing “Pokémon Go,” San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Rich Eaton said. Both the men’s where injured after the accident however the extent of the injury is not yet known.


For  all those who don’t know about Pokémon Go, it is actually a free-to-play app that gets users up and moving in the real world to capture image of “pocket monsters” known as Pokémon. The target here is to collect various type of Pokemon. Once captured a wild Pokémon, the player is awarded two types of in-game currencies: candies and stardust.

Both men were so much involved in the game, apparently When firefighters arrived at the scene, one man was injured lying under the cliff and other was on his way down and had to be hoisted up, Eaton said.

Both men were admitted at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla.

I may request all players to be careful after all it is just a game. “It’s not worth life or limb,”

Already after the launch of the game in parts of San Diego County, there are warning signs for gamers not to play while driving. San Diego Gas and Electric tweeted a warning to stay away from electric lines and substations when catching.
