Man found dead at computer

Posted by jtsmyth8 on February 15, 2008

Play games much? If you spot empty energy drinks around your son’s computer chair then you need to get him to take a break. 8 hours is too much to be doing anything (even work, hehe). Take a break, get some fresh air, something to eat, maybe even go out with your friends. Computer games are fun, just don’t over indulge. Maybe the government needs to look into computer addiction, just look at how many people playing World of Warcraft.

“A 20 yr old unemployed man was found dead slumped over his computer at home on Wednesday afternoon.Mr Ong Yi Biao was alone at home that day, and had logged onto his computer at about 11am to play the game, Defence of the Ancients.

When his 14-year-old sister returned to their Geylang Bahru rental flat at about 4pm, she found him slumped in his chair.

Mr Ong’s sister on Thursday told reporters at the mortuary that her brother had been playing computer game with eight other players.” (story)
