The Week: Google Maps leads a car into a river in Kerala

The Week: Google Maps leads a car into a river in Kerala. “Travelling with Google Maps as a guide at night led a family in Kerala into a river, Manoramaonline reported. The family of Karikkal Sebastian was on their way from Palakkad to Thrissur in a car when they took to Google Maps to find a different route with less traffic. Since it was dark, they did not realise there was a water body in front of them, the publication reported. No casualties were reported. A similar incident was reported in September at Kasargod, when a car narrowly escaped falling into a pond.”
