Sometimes a small mistake becomes very dangerous. A similar case has come to light in Russia, in which a 18-year-old boy lost his way due to a wrong direction given by Google Map.
Following Google map, two boy went on the wrong way in car. At night, temperature reached -50 degree Celsius and one boy died due to freezing in winter. Both of them were stuck on this road for a week.
Two boys stranded for more than a week
According to the report, Sergey Ustinov and Valdislav Istomin had been driving from the world’s coldest city Yakutsk to the port of Magadan, on a highway known as the Road of Bones.
The route on Yandex Maps shows a distance of 1,900km on the Kolyma federal highway through Ust-Nera.
But the boys followed Google Maps, which showed shorter route via Tomtor of 1,733km across snow covered terrain.
The Road of Bones
They accidentally reached the Road of Bones, which is considered very dangerous at night because the temperature suddenly drops here. Google Map sent both of them on a path that was not only closed but also very complicated.
The road was completely covered with snow and the car’s radiator also stopped working after the winter grew. Both of these boys did not know how to deal with the severe cold and so one of them died due to frost while the other’s hands and feet are badly frozen.
Boy’s hands and feet may have to be amputated. According to the news, Sergey’s entire body is found frozen like a stone, while Valdislav is still alive but in very critical condition.
