Officers who responded to the incident said that “the men got distracted while trying to catch Pokémon,” Fox59 reported.

Sgt. Rich Eaton of the San Diego County Police Department told The Huffington Post, “This is just a game, please don’t lose your life over a game. Pay attention to your surroundings.”

The gamers sustained moderate injuries and were sent to Scripps La Jolla Hospital.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first incident where Pokémon Go gamers faced danger

Recently, two people from Ohio hopped a fence at the Toledo Zoo to try and catch the fantasy creatures.

A driver in New York also ran into a tree after being distracted by his Pokémon game.

“Pokémon Go” lovers need to realize that their own lives are more important than a fad game app on their smartphones, because possibly dying over a game is not worth it.
