Pokémon Go leads two players off a cliff in Encinitas

Posted: Updated:

ENCINITAS, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two men who were playing "Pokemon Go" fell off an ocean bluff in Encinitas.

Encinitas firefighters say the men climbed through a fence Wednesday afternoon while playing the digital-monster cellphone game.

One man fell about 50 feet down the side of the unstable bluff and the other fell about 90 feet to the beach.

They were taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.

The wildly popular game involves chasing digital critters that pop up as you move about the real world. There have been reports of distracted players walking into trees, playing while driving, and even being robbed by crooks who lured players with digital goodies.

In Anaheim, police say one player was stabbed Wednesday by a group of men in a park.

His wounds aren't life-threatening.
