The Dangers for Pokémon Go Players
Pokémon Go has taken over the world. Hordes of users downloaded the smartphone game causing crashed servers, but in their wandering, face down, quest to catch every character, some players are putting themselves in real danger by not paying attention to their surroundings.
The app, which asks users to run around looking for virtual characters who pop up on their phone screens, is causing reports of some players who have sustained injuries while playing the game. Some players have fallen in to ditches or wandered in front of cars causing serious injures.
