After 4 days of Call of Duty, a teenager of 15 years is hospitalized

It's not a scoop: play can be dangerous too. Abuse is wrong in any way, not only with video games. Several people have died in similar circumstances, including the young age of 18 Taiwanese who spent 40 hours on Diablo III.

New story in the U.S. this time in Columbus, Ohio: A 15 year old boy was locked up for four days to play Call of Duty. Until, exhausted, he collapsed several times before his mother. He has been hospitalized in emergency for severe dehydration.

The most surprising is still the reaction of the boy's mother, who said his son has left his room only twice in four days, for a quick sandwich and a shower. Fortunately, the teenager is safe and should be able to quickly resume the handle. But not right away: his mother has still decided to withdraw his console, an Xbox 360.
