NY Man Gets Stuck in Mud Pit While Playing ‘Pokemon Go' at Night

A 62-year-old man had to be rescued after he became stuck in waist-deep mud while playing 'Pokemon Go' at night in the woods behind his upstate New York home, authorities said.

The man was playing the virtual creature-hunting game on his cellphone around 2 a.m. Sunday when he wandered into thick woods behind his home in Coeymans, just south of Albany, according to police.

Officials said he became trapped in a mud pit up to his waist and couldn't get out. He used his phone to call 911, who guided an officer to his location by pinging the man's phone and the officer's.

The man's name hasn't been released.
