A gamer at an Internet cafe who died after a 23-hour marathon spree may have been sat dead at his PC amongst other patrons for as long as 9 hours.
The incident occurred at a New Taipei City Internet cafe, where a 23-year-old man had been playing for “at least 23 hours.”
He was found dead at his PC with arms outstretched as if playing by a female member of staff, perhaps explaining why it took so long for him to be noticed by patrons and staff.
Roughly 30 other customers were said to have been at the cafe, though none noticed he was deceased and one patron witnessed him sat at the same PC for at least 9 hours.
Police say his cause of death was cardiac arrest caused by low body temperature. There is no information as to what game he was playing when he died.
