In another example of out-of-control electronic violence, another good man was been struck dead thanks to video gaming. According to the Telegraph, Tim Eves, a 25-year-old scoutmaster and fisherman from Yarmouth, Norfolk in the UK, died while running in place on the Wii Fit.
Actually, this is quite a bittersweet story. Eves apparently died of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome and could have died doing almost anything that day but, because he was on a Wii balance board, the news stories tonight will probably run into the hyperbolic.
We all loved him so much.”
Mr Eves, who lived in Hopton-on-Sea, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, died at home just moments after speaking with his mother, June.
She said: “We spoke to him on the phone when he was playing on the Wii machine. He told us he had just ordered himself a kebab and was sitting there with a glass of port.
Sounds like he went out around people he loved doing something he enjoyed. You can’t ask for much more.
