After playing online games for three days straight at an internet cafe in China, a 30 year old man collapsed and fell into a coma and was pronounced dead at a hospital.
It was reported the man had not ate, slept, or drank for three days straight after spending more than $1500 on internet gaming.
Several computers were removed from the internet cafe as investigators ruled out possible homicide.
More than 30 million internet addicts live in China as addiction rates rise as broadband infrastructure improves.
