Pokemon Go players fall off 90-foot cliff

- Two men playing the new Pokemon Go mobile phone apparently fell off a cliff in California while trying to ‘catch ‘em all.’

The men were playing the game in Encinitas, Calif., when they fell off the cliff to the beach below, according to FOX affiliate KSWB. Officers say the men were distracted when they were near the cliff and fell off.

One of the players fell about 90 feet onto the beach while the other player fell about 50 feet, Encinitas fire Battalion Chief Robbie Ford told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The men were quickly rescued and did not receive any serious injuries.

Since the release of the game last week, there have been reports of Pokemon Go players being robbed, injuring themselves and even causing car accidents.
