Google Blurs woman in Street View

Postby AndroidOS » 15 Jan 2012, 13:54

The nice Street View cars roll by and don't stop for naked ladies, nor indeed, for naked gentlemen in the trunks of their Mercedes.
Recently, though, a Reddit forum was most amused by the misfortunes of a Brazilian lady who was walking along a street in Belo Horizonte, tripped and fell face first.

There is no evidence that she was suddenly startled by the approaching Google Street View vehicle. There is, equally, no evidence that she wasn't.
Once the online merriment began, Google seems to have decided that the woman's public fall is too much for neutral eyes. The image has now been blurred.
But not before a Redditor with the handle Spanser committed the entire proceedings to posterity.
