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.”
Though the title was not revealed, Hsieh was described as playing “combat computer games”.
