Quote :
According to her mother, Anna-Lee was playing Xbox for hours and took a break to go to the bathroom. Soon after, she emerged from the bathroom and told her mom she couldn't breathe. Her mother thought this was associated with her asthma, but paramedics ruled it as a heart attack. Doctors don't know what brought on the heart attack, however.

What the fuck.

What next? Man spontaneously combusts while taking a break from CoD? Seems like everyday people are creating new reasons to hate video games.

Misleading headline is misleading.

Should read "Girl dies from heart attack brought on by taking a giant shit"

I heard about a guy who died after playing WoW for ages and not eating or drinking.
I thought, "What a hero."

Quote from the article.

"The headline isn't even accurate because she wasn't playing the Xbox when she had the heart attack, it was when she went to the bathroom. The real question is what happened to her while she was in there. Likely, the Xbox didn't have anything to do with it."

THAT article... yes....

THAT article said that precisely because other (more mainstream) media portrayed it as more related to the game playing
