A teenager in Taiwan died after playing Diablo III for 40 straight hours in an internet cafe, according to the United Daily News broadsheet reported yesterday.
The 18-year-old, surnamed Chuang, reserved a private room at the cafe in Tainan and, starting at noon on July 13, played for nearly two days continuously without eating.
An attendant woke him up on the morning of July 15 after he had been resting on a table, but after taking a few steps, he collapsed and was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Authorities speculate that him sitting for that period of time caused cardiovascular problems.
I speculate that him NOT EATING caused his death.
