Minecraft: Fell into a Grey Hole on iPad

  • My kids have Minecraft on their iPads as well as on their laptops. On the iPad, one of the kids fell into what they are calling a "grey hole." Their avatar is now just floating out in space, from what I can tell. Is there a way to get them back so that they can play the game again or is this a bizarre way to just end the game without actually telling them that they are dead and need to start over?
