A US couple was charged with child neglect and endangerment after abandoning their toddler to play Pokemon Go.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said that Brent Daley, 27, and Brianne Daley, 25, left their 2-year-old boy at their home for 90 minutes without water while they played Pokemon Go in a nearby neighbourhood.

The police found the boy at 10:30 p.m. last Thursday night after a neighbour dialed 911 and told authorities she found a child who appeared to have been abandoned.

Sheriff Paul Babeu said in the release that what the couple had done was "beyond comprehension." 

We never would have imagined that parents would abandon a child to play ‘Pokemon Go,'”
