All Night Gaming Kills


A boy (15), who spent all night gaming at a net café, suddenly keeled over dead in the early morning.

The boy apparently went to the café with his friend (17) at 8pm, where they spent an hour gaming and then went out for supper, returning at 10.

However, at 2am he was found face down at the computer, apparently sleeping. After two hours of this, the manager of the shop became worried and took the unconscious boy to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The café operator was found to be unlicensed, claiming ignorance of the need for one in the newly established venue, though this does not seem to be connected the boy’s demise.

It is important for the parents however: they explain that “up till now our boy never played games into the night like this, and he was mostly healthy and free of illness”. They also explain that they plan to sue the café…

Via Searchina.

Nobody seems concerned to relate his cause of death, and worst of all we do not hear which game killed him. Wags have been suggesting he was PKed…

    ok... like even an Epic Gamer, an EpicSlayer who spends 12h playing, 2h eating 2h various and 6 sleeping for years can hold a conversation today and yet how would gaming kill? 1, gaming causes stress over time, 2, being new at a game takes more mental toll in those hours, 3, coffee is a stress booster that can even lead to panic attacks, 4, any substance being drugs or medication to a product combined with coffee can suddently go wrong under those stress conditions for no apparent when playing ColdSnap in Halo PC Custom Edition for 6 hours can give me numb hands and i need a break to eat and drink watter, pee, then listen to music for 1-2 hours before I feel good enough to resume... like no matter how good you are, no ammount of game play later... getting good only gets harder and harder untill your 1st-4th in most games servers and 30% of the time being in the lower 10th to ???thZ like even the best falls down from lower classes... just that much less often... like if you can get some one stressed out... you WON HALF THE BATTLE!

    Wait what? He played for a total time of FIVE hours and died? Something tells me that the cause of death was not related to the gaming itself...

    2 and a half days. Jolt, caffeine, and the occasional usage of weed.

    That was one hell of a Monster Hunter run, and I said "Ok", that's enough, curled up and went to sleep right there. :/

    His weak stamina is due to the fact he lacks training. Play more games. Modern Warfare 2 FTW.

    He could have gotten tired and then decided to take some red bull. Yes, that can kill you.

    If you're sleepy and drink a red bull your heart might stop from the sudden energy boost.

    Funny how no one responded to the last comment
    "Wags have been suggesting he was PKed…"
    I'll buy that excuse... XD
    Seriously 5 hours is nothing :O My longest recorded time for playing a game over a month was 300 total hours :O *about 12 hours a day* and I didn't keel over and die... There is definably some other cause to this. My guess is Food Poisoning, some other event that took place before entering the Cafe... or his friend possibly poisoning him since apparently his friend wasn't with him when he died :O

    Nah the most logical thing that could have happened was that some kind of ghost/shinnigami/etc or something like that came out of the screen and killed him! ^_^

    this article made me laugh so freaking hard.

    silly twits, staying up for hours and hours on end playing games doesn't kill you, telling that person to get up and go outside will

    well. they can sue the cafe for its illegal license but not for killing their son. there is no proof of connection between his death and internet cafe's doing

    I assume he died while playing one of those "Strong epyleptic effects on humanity warning" games.
    A flash and you die.

    heart attack doesnt matter how old you are or what your doing you can even feel healthy but if he rarely had illnesses then there was no need for them to take him to the doctor there for he could of had severe cardiovascular difficulty and died it happens to some WOW players as well
