If Harry and Lloyd were real they would probably fall off a cliff while playing Pokemon Go! Unfortunately it wasn't Harry and Lloyd who did this in real life. Two men in San Diego took Pokemon Go to the extreme. I have to say as someone who has played the game. It is very immersive and can be hard to look away from when you are very near a creature. I have watched others run square into doors which unplanted their feet knocking them to the ground. While I can see losing track of where you are while playing, it is hard to see not focusing on at the very least not falling of the edge of a cliff!
San Diego County Sheriff's Department confirmed that two men, 21 and 22 years old, fell off a cliff in North County during a Pokemon Go session. The first man fell 90 feet while the second fell 50 feet. It looks like alcohol may have been involved which explains the ridiculous decision to play this game next to a cliff. As the warning says when you open the game "Be alert at all times, and be aware of your surroundings.". Have fun out there and stay safe.
