A Taiwanese man thought to have died playing video games at an Internet café in New Taipei City went completely un-noticed by fellow customers for up to nine hours.
The 23-year-old checked in at the cafe last Tuesday night (30th Jan) and was found dead but still sitting rigidly on a chair with his hands stretched out the following night by a waitress.
The waitress last saw him talking on the phone around noon on Wednesday and his body had apparently been sitting there for up to nine hours without any of the 30 other people in the cafe noticing.
The man is thought to have died of a heart attack brought on by low temperatures.
Well, if ever you needed evidence that video games are bad for your health, this is it.
