Woman finds body while playing Pokémon Go app

(CNN) – Shayla Wiggins decided she would go on a walk before work with hopes of finding Pokémon in a new mobile phone game.

Shayla Wiggins, who found the body said, “I woke up this morning and I wanted to go get a water Pokémon so I just got up and went for my little walk, a walk to catch Pokémon.”

She instead found a body lying face down in the river.

Shayla Wiggins: “I didn’t know what to do, I was really scared so I was just like I should call 911 and then I called 911 and they told me to go wait up at the highway for a police officer.”

Undersheriff Ryan Lee, Fremont County Sheriff Department said, “There was a dead body that this point in time has been identified as an adult male laying face-down in the water under the big wind river bridge alongside 789 south of Riverton.”

Wiggins was under the bridge searching for a specific type of Pokémon.

Shayla Wiggins: “Pokemon go is a game app where you catch creatures in real life terrains with your phone. You might find bugs or grass type Pokemon in forested areas or water Pokemon by lakes and rivers.”

Finding someone dead won’t stop Wiggins playing Pokémon go.

Are you still going to walk down by the river trying to catch Pokemon?

Shayla Wiggins: “Yeah I might go get a water Pokemon. I’m going to try.”
