'Fit and healthy' Brit dies playing Wii

25-year-old collapses during Wii Sports session

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A young man has died after collapsing while playing Wii Fit.

Tim Eves, 25, from Hopton-on-Sea, was said by his girlfriend to have been jogging on the spot when he suddenly slumped to the floor.

Although an ambulance was called, and Eves was rushed to hospital, he was declared dead on arrival.

Eves' mother said she had spoken to him while he was playing on the Wii, but that “a little while after he had put the phone down, he collapsed”.

The unlucky gamer is said to have been fit and healthy, and – although an official cause of death has yet to be established – it’s been reported by several online news sources that he could have been killed by Sudden Adult Death Syndrome - essentially a heart attack without the usual preliminary symptoms. ®
