(Scroll down for video) A woman of New Jersey, was forced to call for help after she got stuck in a tree while chasing a Pokemon.

The woman was not in her own backyard, but rather in a cemetery.

The woman entered the Eglington Cemetery in Greenwich Township, while trying to catch Pokemon. The woman then climbed a tree as the character was up there.

When she was unable to get down, the unnamed woman called for help.

Firefighters used a ladder to get the woman down from the tree safely. The East Greenwich Township Fire and Rescue posted photos of the rescue to their Facebook page.

“She was a bit embarrassed at that point,” said Rob Gould III, who is the township’s fire chief. They decided not to embarrass her any further, and kept her identity private.
