Tech Hazards: Man shot dead after GPS takes him to 'Wrong House'

What a tragedy - a GPS error can lead you to your death rather than to your friend.

And this is exactly what happened when Rodrigo Diaz, a 22-year-old from Georgia was trying to locate a friend's house to pick him up for going to ice skating.

But the poor Diaz instead reached the house of a 69 years old Vietnam veteran Phillip Sailors, who though his house was being raided and fired two shots from his .22 gun and one of the bullet proved fatal as it hit Diaz right in his head, killing him instantly.


"The guy came out," 15-year-old passenger Yeson Jimenez told WSBTV. "He went in again and he came out with a gun in his hand and he shot into the air."
