    A family of a budding computer programmer have on Saturday launched a campaign to raise awareness about the health risks of playing online computer games after their son died following a marathon session on his Xbox.
    http://blog.games.yahoo.com/blog/866...om-blood-clot/

    A post-mortem revealed that 20-year-old Chris Staniforth -- who was offered a place to study Game Design at Leicester University -- was killed by a pulmonary embolism, which can occur if someone sits in the same position for several hours.

    How sad for the family. :mad:

    very sad for the family



    Staniforth's distraught father said his son would spend up to 12 hours playing on his Xbox.

    "He got sucked in playing Halo online against people from all over the world."
    um....well dad, why didn't you get him out the door? and wonder where he learned sitting around on his ass from?
