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.

"The biggest thing we are trying to stress out of all this is people playing this game need to be cognizant about watching where they are going and what they are doing so no one gets hurt," East Greenwich Township Fire Chief Rob Gould told ABC11's sister-station WPVI Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, the fire department warned "Pokemon Go" players to "think about what you are doing and where you are going before you actually do it."
