Pokemon Go players disrupt Brisbane funeral

Two teenagers playing Pokemon Go were asked to leave a Brisbane Funeral inside a Catholic Church.

The incident happened at St Joseph’s Catholic Church at Corinda while a memorial service was underway for 87-year-old Neil Murphy.

His wife Cecily Murphy said she found it hard to believe they were chasing Pokemon.

“I only saw the organist shake her head and the person walk away but my friend Geoffrey, he saw the young fellow put his phone up and took a Pokemon photo,” Mrs Murphy said.

She said a church was no place for catching Pokemon and that people should know better, reports ABC.

“It’s not the correct thing to do. I have a son who was a policeman and he said if he’d seen it he would have got up and escorted them out,” she said.

A church spokesman said the organist told the boys to leave.
