If you needed any evidence that extreme video game binges are dangerous, look no further than a 15-year-old Ohio boy.
According to a report by CBS, Columbus resident Tyler Rigby played Modern Warfare 3 for four days straight before being hospitalized for dehydration.
According to Rigby's aunt Jennifer Thompson, "it's like he was looking at me but he wasn't there. It was like he was looking through me.
"We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell."
Rigby's mother Jessie Rawlins said he was worried for his life. "He just fell over three times," she said.
While Rigby is expected to recover after being hydrated by medics, his mother says his Xbox will be confiscated.
