Heart failure stemming from exhaustion claims life of South Korean gamer
A 28-year-old South Korean man who began a marathon online gaming session August 3 died just after 50 hours of nearly nonstop gaming, according to a Reuters report. Identified by authorities only by his surname of Lee, the man only left his online battle simulation games to go to the bathroom and to take short naps on a makeshift bed. Lee had apparently quit his job recently to play more games. The cause of death was presumed to be heart failure stemming from exhaustion. The event is sadly reminiscent of previous gaming marathon deaths in South Korea and Taiwan.
SO U QUIT UR JOB TO PLAY MORE GAMES.....MAYBE HE DIDNT TAKE ANY BREAKS CUZ HE HAD NO MORE MONEY TO BUY ANYTHING...THATS A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE
