Here is yet another story about someone collapsing playing WoW but this time in Sweden!

A schoolboy collapsed and went into convulsions after playing a new version of the World of Warcraft computer game for 24 hours straight.

The 15-year-old boy and his friends were playing Wrath of the Lich King when he suffered what appeared to be an epileptic seizure, it was reported today.

“They played all day and all night. Maybe they got a few hours of sleep. They ate a little food and breakfast at their computers,†the boy’s father told the Kvällsposten newspaper in Sweden.

Doctors told the father that his son’s bodily systems had been disrupted by a combination of sleep deprivation, lack of food, and the prolonged period of concentration playing the game.
