Another Gaming Marathon Death.....

Well actually it's about a year since the last reported gaming marathon death, but that doesn't keep people from getting darwin awards.  This time we have an 18 year old Taiwanese boy who died after playing Diablo 3 for over 40 hours  straight.  The boy neglected food and drink nonstop in favor of the game at a Lan center.  He was passed out when an employee at the center found him and managed to wake him.  After a few steps, the boy collapsed and was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead after nine hours of intensive care.
