The Pokémon Go craze is getting more and more bizzare as new stories emerge everyday about people walking, or running into incidents while playing the virtual reality game Pokémon Go. 
Pokémon Go causes Canadian teenagers to cross border into US while playing the game

Heads up! Two Canadian teens accidentally accidentally walked across the U.S. border on Thursday, July 21, while playing the popular game Pokémon Go.

The two boys were apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol agents after they were spotted walking southbound from the Canadian province of Alberta into Montana.

The agents had heard of the hypnotic game. They understood.

The agents soon determined that the teens were unaware they had crossed the international border because they were so wrapped up in their game.

Both juveniles were so captivated by their games that they lost track of where they were,"

 The agency’s public affairs officer, Michael Rappold, said in a statement.
"They crossed the international border inadvertently, but agents were able to reunite them with their mother."

But not everyone was that lucky.

On a tragic note, some days ago another teenager, an 18 year old was shot dead when he ran into a private property while playing Pokémon Go
