Teen Dies after 40 hours of playing Diablo III

Playing games is becoming fatal these days...



Diablo III which was released last May 15 has caused to much addiction to it's player.

An 18-year old who played at local Internet café, named Chuang died after 40-hours of non-stop playing of Diablo III. His obsession with the game has became fatal.

As the report says, Chuang never stop playing for sleep or food during the 40 hours marathon. An employee from the Internet café said they found him passed out on his table last Sunday. The employee then approached Chuang and woke him up. Chuang stood and after a few steps he collapsed. He was rushed to a hospital nearby and later pronounced dead.

An autopsy was performed on Chuang it says the long period of sitting could have created blood clots which might have caused Chuang death.

I wonder why Chuang parents/family never looked for him or even ask for him since he was missing home for  2 days...unless he was living alone. Tsk...tsk...tsk...

Sadly, this is not the first time that someone dies from playing games for long hours.

The deaths became the risk of game addiction. I hope players would put their health first...People should be responsible enough to know their priority. It's such a shame to waste a life on playing games alone..
