Man Found Dead From Gaming Binge


A 32-year old man from Taiwan has been found dead inside a Internet cafe at his desk after a three day gaming binge. Emergency services were called to the scene when a customer found the 32-year old motionless slumped at his desk.

The man known by his surname Hsieh was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead due to cardiac failure. Sadly, Police believe the man had passed away several hours prior to being discovered due to the condition of his body. 

Strangely, gamers continued with what they were doing as though nothing had happened when paramedics arrived on scene, maybe slightly disrespectful?

Cold temperatures and exhaustion from the extensive hours playing games are likely to have contributed to Hsieh's cardiac arrest, a police statement read. According to a report from Jennifer Wu a police spokes person, the man was unemployed and the Internet cafe was the only place he could go, further adding "His family said he would disappear for two to three days on end."

Our thoughts go out to Hsieh's family and friends.

You could say he was Left for Dead . Distasteful jokes aside, I wonder what he was playing, my money would be on WoW or some other mmo.Quote

I don't think it's harsh. It's sad to see anyone die that young, but he should have taken more care.

It doesn't say it in the story, but I'm guessing a mass of energy drinks contributed to the cardiac arrest.Quote
