In North San Diego County, two men fell off a cliff estimated 50 to 90 feet down in Encinitas, California while playing Pokemon Go, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Rich Eaton said.
Encinitas fire officials said that one men fell about 30 metres, the other was found unconscious 15 metres down the bluff. Both men were taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, they were suffered moderate injuries. But they were not charged with trespassing.
According to the firefighters, the men had crossed fence area to get to the bluff.
“I think people just need to realise this is a game,” Eaton said.
“It’s not worth your life. No game is worth your life.”
In parts of San Diego County, there are warning signs for gamers not to play while driving, while San Diego Gas and Electric tweeted a warning saying to stay away from electric lines and substations when trying to catch Pokemon.
It should be the Pokemon Go players have responsibility for their own safety concerns while playing the game, extending warning signs in the areas they’ve been catching rare Pokemon species.
