A 17-year-old boy in Thailand had a stroke and died at his computer after playing videos games all-night during his school break.

Piyawat Harikun, 17, had been home from school for the holidays and was playing video games on his PC. His parents say that he would play all throughout the night and even in the day.

He wouldn’t even leave his room to eat, so his parents took him food and takeout.

On Monday, his dad Jaranwit discovered his son slumped over a PC tower on the floor. He was surrounded by takeout boxes and soda.

His dad attempted to revive him, but, it was too late,

”I called his name and said ‘wake up, wake up’ but he did not respond. I could see he was dead.”

Medics revealed that Piyawat suffered a stroke from pulling all-nighters on his PC. His dad wants this to be a lesson to other parents.

“I want my son’s death to be an example and warning for parents whose children are game addicts.

“They need to be more strict on their children’s playing hours otherwise they could end up like my son.”
