Online addict dies after “marathon” session

‘An obese 26-year-old man in northeastern China died after a “marathon” online gaming session over the Lunar New Year holiday, state media said on Wednesday.

The 150-kg (330-lb) man from Jinzhou, in Liaoning province, collapsed on Saturday, the last day of the holiday, after spending “almost all” of the seven-day break playing online games, the China Daily said, citing his parents.

Xu Yan, a local teacher, said the “dull life” during the holiday prompted many people to turn to computer games for entertainment.’
