When Your GPS Goes Bad

Rio considering GPS alternative!

Rio considering GPS alternative!

You know your GPS (Global Positioning System) hates you when it guides you straight into Rio de Janeiro’s most dangerous slum. Three Norwegian tourists are licking their wounds after the GPS in their rented car gave them a quick alternative route to the airport, via the Mare slum complex. It didn’t take long for the rented car to come under fire. Trygve Killingtveit (driver), was shot in the shoulder whilst the other two escaped with only permanent psychological damage. The three tourists are now safe and sound back in Norway.
