Just when you thought we, as a society, couldn’t get lazier – the people who make video games have even started worrying for us, and inventing ways to get us out of the house.
Pokemon GO is a game where you have to wander around to try and catch them all. It was released earlier this week in America, but hasn’t been officially released yet in the UK. You can, however, log into the American app store and get it that way.
Since it’s release, the game has caused lots of weird happenings. Mostly just, you know, people leaving the house.
The weirdest however has to be 19-year-old Shayla Wiggins, who found adead body floating in the Wind River, Wyoming.
Shayla toldCounty 10 that she woke up earlyyesterdaymorning just to play Pokemon GO.
“I was trying to get a Pokmon from a natural water resource,” she explained. She said that she jumped over the fence to go towards the river in search of a Pokmon.
“I was walking towards the bridge along the shore when I saw something in the water. I had to take a second look and I realized it was a body.”
She said the figure was floating about three feet from the shore, and it seemedlike the body of an average sized male.
“It was pretty shocking,” Shayla said. “I didn’t really know what to do at first. But I called 911 right away and they came really quickly.” Shortly after authorities arrived they took Shayla down to the scene where she had indicated she found the body.
Detectives told Shayla that they thought the body had been there for less than 24 hours.
The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office has released the following information: The death appears to be accidental in nature and possibly that of a drowning. There is no evidence at this time that would indicate foul play. Evidence located at the scene has led investigators to believe the man went into the water at the location he was found.
So, guys. There’s more to look out for in the world than just Pokemon. Make sure you look where you’re walking…
