A 19-year-old discovered a body on Friday morning while playing Pokémon Go by the Big Wind River in Wyoming.
According to local reports, Shayla Wiggins saw something floating in the river while she was looking for Pokémon that live in the water. The Pokémon Go game requires users travel to real world places to find and collect different types of Pokémon.
"I was walking towards the bridge along the shore when I saw something in the water," Shayla told County 10. "I had to take a second look and I realised it was a body."
According to the Fremont County Sheriff's Office, the body was an adult male; foul play is not suspected. "The death appears to be accidental in nature and possibly that of a drowning," the sheriff stated on Facebook.
