Pokemon GO Players Find Another Dead Body

Last week, a Pokemon GO player found a dead body in Wyoming. Today, the same thing has happened in New Hampshire.

7 News in Boston reports that the body was found floating in a brook at Rotary Park in Nashua earlier today. A Pokemon GO player had made the discovery while wandering the area catching pocket monsters, with the park apparently a popular site owing to its Pokestops.

Also: check out the last line of the 7 News report:

It is unclear what caused the man's death, and whether he was also playing Pokemon GO.

In happier "Pokemon GO players stumble into real-world events" news, the same outlet report that two players from Lowell, MA were out looking for Pikachu near some local basketball courts when "they found an unresponsive man sitting near the benches" following a drug overdose. They called 911, paramedics got there, revived the guy and he survived.

Remember the days when everyone just stayed inside not playing Pokemon GO and these things just happened? Bodies could float in creeks for days, folks would die alone on park benches, what a different world it was.

    “they found an unresponsive man sitting near the benches” following a drug overdose.

    Yes, but did that happen because he was playing Pokemon Go? :o

      Prob not.
      There is a ton of dodgy stories popping up that are strange and unverifiable or end up being over embellished.

      Then you have the expected anti-fad lot and the religious kerfuffle.

      Maybe we just aren't ready to throw down our weapons and advance in to a glorious future where we battle small
      animals.

        ...I was joking by suggesting Pokemon Go would cause a drug overdose. -_-

    It's only a matter of time until CBS start capitalising and produce "CSI: GO".

    Amazing what happens when a few million people decide to go outside.
