Pokemon Go player calls 911 while stuck in a tree in a cemetery
This might be the wildest Pokémon Go story yet. A young woman, who wishes to remain anonymous out of embarrassment, had to call 911 after getting stuck in a tree… in a cemetery. The New Jersey woman had climbed the tree to capture a Pokémon, but could not get down on her own.
“She was a little embarrassed at that point,” East Greenwich Township Fire and Rescue Chief Rob Gould III told reporters.
First responders helped the woman down from the tree using a ladder. The township’s fire and rescue team posted pictures of responders at work on its’ Facebook page with a cautionary warning:
“Well we’ve all heard of firemen rescuing cats in stuck in a tree,” the township’s fire and rescue squad posted on its Facebook page alongside several photos of the team at work and the header, “Public Safety Message Of The Day.”
