The absolute worst things to happen because of Pokemon Go (so far)

Pokemon Go Causes Serious Injuries

It's right there at the very start every time you open the app: be alert at all times and aware of your surroundings. This warning has gone unheeded by more than a few overeager fans who've got to catch 'em all.

In Encinitas, California, two unnamed men in their early 20's took a tumble off a cliff while looking for Pokemon, resulting in life guards having to rescue them before being carted off to Scripps La Jolla Hospital for treatment. 

Many more injuries have been reported, from falls to car crashes, with the 1st official death attributed to the game occurring in Guatemala in late July when a teen player was ambushed and shot. It's a fun game, but not worth dying over.
