A 36-year-old mainland Chinese tourist got lost and hurt himself on a hill in Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, on Monday because of an apparent malfunction of his phone’s GPS navigation system.
At 4pm, Du, a tourist from Liaoning province, was traveling around in Mong Kok and planned to find a hotel in Yau Ma Tei while his wife and son were at Hong Kong Disneyland, Apple Daily reported.
The family had arrived in the city on Monday morning.
Since it was his first visit to the city, Du turned on his iPhone’s Global Positioning System app and set Yau Ma Tei Mass Transit Railway (MTR) Station as his destination.
Du followed the route his phone showed, but after walking for 30 minutes, he found himself on King’s Park Hill and surrounded by brush, indicating that the GPS device had directed him to the wrong destination.
He tried to yell for help but no one was close enough to hear him.
Adding to his woes, he slipped on some moss and injured a finger on his right hand. Bleeding from the wound, he finally gave up trying to find his way out and called the police, Sing Tao Daily reported.
Firemen found Du around the King’s Park Playground area.
King’s Park Hill, a 40-meter-high hill, is only five to 10 minutes’ walk from Yau Ma Tei MTR Station – if you know the way.
