Man dies after three-day gaming marathon

internetcafeIn Beijing, China, a man died after playing Internet games for three straight days. It took place in an Internet cafe, which China is working very hard in trying to control ; in-fact, China banned all openings of new cybercafes this year and limited the amount of time Internet users can play games online.

The man was from Guangzhou and was around 30 years old. The death took place on Saturday and was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital. According to the newspaper, "Police have ruled out the possibility of suicide."

All laughing matters aside, we all giggle when we think of these hardcore gamers and say, "oh, we’ll never be like that!" A death like this is probably one of the most extreme and unlikely deaths possible, but it happens, so take care of yourself when doing excessive gaming time.
