CLARKSBORO, N.J. (AP) – Authorities say a New Jersey woman trying to catch Pokemon in a cemetery ended up stuck in a tree and had to call 911 to rescue her.

Firefighters in Clarksboro say the woman climbed a tree Tuesday night while playing “Pokemon Go” on her smartphone inside the Eglington Cemetery.

She called 911, and the East Greenwich Township Fire and Rescue arrived to get her down with a ladder.

Chief Rob Gould tells WCAU-TV (http://bit.ly/29U3anQ) that “she was a bit embarrassed at that point.” Fire officials didn’t release her name to spare her additional embarrassment.

In a Facebook post, the fire department warned “Pokemon Go” players to watch where they’re going so no one gets hurt.

This story has been corrected to show the township is called East Greenwich, not East Greenwhich.
