New Jersey Man’s Terrible Fall Caught On Camera By Google Maps
Have you ever gone on Google Maps and found something unusual of out of the ordinary? That had to have been what happened when someone searched the address "725 Willow Avenue, Hoboken, NJ", because as first reported by Patch.com, the Google Maps Street View image of that address shows a man falling backwards down a flight of stairs.
Google says that Google Maps and it's Street View feature enables "people everywhere to virtually explore the world." Street View consists of "millions of panoramic images." Most, of which, are taken by cars specifically designed to capture the photos. (Watch this video to see the cars in action).
When Patch.com first reported the story of the man falling in Hoboken, the photos on Google Maps were very clear.
After the story went viral, parts of the images were blurred out.
An image after the fall shows a woman and a man with a dog walking toward the spot where the man fell, as well as, a man looking in that direction.
Patch.com says they contacted both Google and local police to try to get more information about the man who fell, but as of this time, no further details were available.
This isn't the first time people have discovered unusual things on Google Maps. Here are a few more examples:
