    "Apple Maps Could Kill You"

    ByAmir Khan on December 10, 2012 10:08 AM EST

    Apple maps are stranding people. Australia has warned that not only are the maps stranding people, but that Apple maps directions could be deadly as well. The Apple maps are stranding people in the middle of the Australian desert, and Australian authorizes said that the directions are so bad, they could kill you.

    "Local Police have been called to assist distressed motorists who have become stranded within the Murray-Sunset National Park after following directions on their Apple i-phone," Australian authorities said about the Apple maps stranding people, according to Yahoo! News. "Tests on the mapping system by police confirm the mapping systems lists Mildura in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, approximately 70km away from the actual location of Mildura."

    The area the Apple maps are stranding people are devoid of any life or food, and being stranded there could mean certain death. Police have already had to rescue six people people stranded by Apple maps over the past two months.

    "Police are extremely concerned as there is no water supply within the Park and temperatures can reach as high as [114 degrees F], making this a potentially life threatening issue," the authorities continued. "Some of the motorists located by police have been stranded for up to 24 hours without food or water and have walked long distances through dangerous terrain to get phone reception."
