Once again, we have an unusual event captured by Google Maps Street View cameras. This time, the exact moment of a man’s ostentatious fall was captured as he was preparing to enter a building. The images date from August 2018 and were captured in New Jersey, United States.

Unsurprisingly, once I discovered this moment captured on Google Maps, it quickly went viral. If you are curious and want to see it with your own eyes, search “725 Willow Ave – Hoboken, NJ” on Google Maps. Although it has already been reported that Google changed the image, at the time of writing this article, you could still visualize the incident.

While you don’t get to see the entire fall, it’s a bone-chilling moment. Especially since it is easy to see that the man ends up falling on his back. In addition, it seems that the 7 steps of the stairs are made of cement, which further aggravates the situation.

Google Maps recaptures an unusual moment with Street View cameras

Unfortunately, there is no information on the man’s condition after this incident. It is possible to see on Google Maps that there were several people in the vicinity, and even some of them are reacting to this accident. Therefore, the necessary medical assistance can be expected to have arrived on the scene shortly thereafter.

This wasn’t the first unusual moment captured by Google Maps cameras and it certainly won’t be the last. As I mentioned in previous articles, if you explore your area through Street View, you can surely find moments that will make you laugh out loud.

I recently shared 15 images captured by Google Maps that reveal a wide variety of unusual moments, which will leave you with only one question in your head, “but why?!”. Even the great Filipe Alves has already been ‘captured’ by Google cameras, despite being censored by the algorithm.

The more time you spend exploring Google Maps, the more viral situations we come across. I also remember the famous puppy in Japan, who went viral after a high-speed chase of Google’s car! Or the couple who ended up divorcing after she was caught with her lover through Street View footage.

However, it’s not just the fun moments that Google Maps cameras capture. Not long ago, we learned in great detail the location (and interior) of a secret military base in Taiwan. The images published on Google Maps were of such quality that we could even see the model of the missile launchers present in the base.

Now we are waiting for the appearance of more unusual events captured by Google cameras. I’m sure it won’t be long until I have more photos to show you!
