1 minute read

A man was found dead in a Taiwanese Internet cafe after an apparent three-day video game binge.

The 32-year-old man with the surname Hsieh died from cardiac failure, and an employee found him motionless on the morning of Jan. 8, CNN reported Monday. Hsieh entered the cafe on Jan. 6, according to Jennifer Wu, a police spokesperson from Taiwan’s Hunei district.

Police said the man had likely been dead for hours before he was discovered. The Taipei Times reports that the man was a frequent customer who often played for days on end.

“He has been unemployed for a long time, and Internet cafes were the only place he could go to,” Wu said.
