16 Year Old Boy Dies After Playing PUBG for Days

Cases involving gaming addiction leading to eventual death have been on the rise in India, especially when it comes to PUBG. Unfortunately, another such case has been reported in Andhra Pradesh, India, where a 16-year-old boy died playing the online game for days on end, skipping meals and not drinking water.

This resulted in severe dehydration and diarrhoea due to the lack of food and water after playing PUBG for days. Once his family found out, he was rushed to a private hospital in the city of Eluru and had to undergo a surgery. However, unfortunately, he did not make it through the operation.

Many similar cases have been reported in the past relating to PUBG. A 25-year-old Indian PUBG player named Harshal Memane died after a stroke following a prolonged PUBG Mobile session. Harshal complained about not being able to move his right arm or leg while playing the game.

He was rushed to a hospital and was diagnosed with severe intracerebral hemorrhaging. He was also not able to recover, and unfortunated, succumbed to the illness shortly afterward.

Another case where a 16-year-old boy died from cardiac arrest in India was reported only three months ago.

It is worth mentioning that gaming addiction is truly a cause for concern and can arise from any video game and not just PUBG. It is up to the children’s parents or guardians to keep an eye out for their loved ones and control such problems before they occur. Prevention is the best form of treatment.
