23 Year Old Cheng Rong-yu was found dead in a Taiwanese internet cafe whilst playing League of Legends.
He began playing the game along with 30 other people on Tuesday, his heart then went into cardiac arrest and he died at his terminal. It wasn’t until nine hours had past when someone realised that he had in fact died.
It is amazing to think that gamers were so lost in their games that they let a fellow player lay lifeless for nine hours.
Chens parents did confirm that the 23 year old had a history of heart issues which were being treated at the time.
This is by no means the first time we’ve seen someone die at their computer screen and it yet again highlights the need for gamers to take a break from their MMO. Moderation is the key people.
