Korean Collegian Dies After 12 Hour Gaming Session

It was recently released that a collegian student in Korea passed away after a 12 hour gaming session playing a first person shooter title in the southeastern city of Ulsan.  While in a gaming parlor, the young person identified as “Moon” passed out and fell to the ground, and was quickly rushed to the emergency room, where he passed away shortly after.

While no certain cause of death has currently been concluded, family remarked that he habitually played the game for extended hours, and was “addicted” to the game, which might have been a contributing factor.
