We’ve all heard the horror stories about playing Pokemon Go, like people walking into ponds or discovering dead bodies. Even being shot at.
Well, here is a good story. The game helped to find a missing woman.
In the town of Annonay, France, a 60-years old woman was reported missing to the Police by her husband. Unfortunately, Policemen were not able to find her after searching for most of the day. Lucky for her, a group of 6 Pokemon players found her stuck in some tree branches, apparently drunk.
The group of players alerted the Police. If not for these players, she could have spent the night outside, maybe even been hurt.
It’s nice to hear some good stories like this. The game is getting people out into the real world more, so there have been a ton of strange stories revolving around the game as players encounter some strange real life circumstances. This story had a good ending. They don’t all go that way though. One thing is for sure, this woman owes Pokemon players a debt of gratitude. It is no fun to be so drunk you get stuck in a tree. They may have just saved her life.
