A teenager was found in bad shape after spending six days at an Internet cafe in China.
The 19-year-old man was found unconscious near some bushes with severely infected feet after he spent 6 days playing games in the Internet cafe.
Police discovered the avid gamer after he collapsed near railroad tracks. They quickly called an ambulance.
The Teen’s feet were infected and had a bad odor. When he regained consciousness, the teen told police officers that he had spent all his money playing video games and he did not eat or sleep in several days.
However, when he had no money left to play, he left the Internet cafe and eventually fainted from fatigue.
Police contacted his father. He initially said that he wanted nothing to do with his son. The father explained that his son ran away from home 10 days earlier.
However, after hearing about the state his son was in, the father agreed to meet him at the hospital.
Recently, several rehabilitation centers for people who are addicted to video games have opened across the country.
