In a tragic incident in Thailand, a 17-year-old boy has died after playing an online game all night. He suffered a stroke which proved fatal, according to the reports.
The boy used to stay up all night and then he would draw up the curtains in the day while playing video games. He spent his entire school holidays in October playing multiplayer battle games.
I called his name and said ‘wake up, wake up’ but he did not respond. I could see he was dead.
The medics have attributed Piyawat Harikun’s death to constantly playing video games through the night. The young boy’s father, Jaranwit, who is an Air Force officer, found him dead in his chair the next morning.
My son was smart and always did great at school but he had a major problem with gaming addiction. I tried to warn him about his relentless long hours playing games and he promised to reduce it, but it was too late.
Talking about his Harikun’s obsession with video games, Jaranwit said that his death is an example for other parents adding that they need to be more strict on their children’s playing hours.
