Man dies playing all-night computer game - Man dies playing all-night computer game
Mon, August 27 2001 | 2:22AM | PermaLink Feedback?
A Thai man has died from heart failure during an all-night computer game. The 22-year-old was found dead at his computer terminal in an internet cafe in Chiang Mai. Police say his friends told them he was addicted to the game and played it from Wednesday evening until he was found slumped over the computer's keyboard at noon on Thursday. They confirmed that Thanet Sommoi, a worker at a ceramics factory, died from heart failure. He had been playing Half Life: Counter Strike, which casts players in the role of terrorist or counter-terrorist. Up to 32 people can join in on the internet. Police say investigators believed Thanet developed tension and fatigue after playing the game for hours, and his heart eventually failed. The Nation reports he was taken to hospital, but was pronounced dead after doctors failed to revive him.
