After a three-day gaming binge at an internet cafe, a Taiwanese man died, slumped in his chair in front of a computer. Doctors declared that the cause of death was sudden heart failure from prolonged gaming.

The 32-year old man, identified only by his family name Hsieh, was a permanent fixture at the internet cafe, often gaming so long that he slept there, according to the employee that discovered his body.

The employee told the Taipei Times: “Hsieh was a regular customer here and always played for consecutive days. When tired, he would sleep face-down on the table or doze off slumped in his chair. That is why we were not aware of his condition in the beginning.”
