Damn, what is it with Korean folk dying at PC-bangs, yo?
There seem to be few gaming stories out of Korea lately that don’t involve some sort of fatality. In this case, a 19-year-old college student died after a 12-hour-session with an FPS at an Internet parlor.
The victim, identified only as “Moon,” started gaming at 2 a.m., took a break at 10:30 a.m. to get some breakfast, then resumed gaming shortly after. Around 2 p.m. he collapsed and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced DOA.
Family and friends described the man as “habitually played the online shooting game.” What specifically that is, no one knows. Cops are investigating the death.
