A 20-year-old gamer died after a marathon gaming session on his Xbox.

A post-mortem showed that the gamer was killed by a pulmonary embolism, which is a fancy word for a clogged artery.

This can happen after someone sits in the same position for several hours.

Doctors say normally passengers on long flights are usually affected by this.

But youngsters who spend a long time in front of their gaming consoles or on the computer are now at risk.

The moral of this story for all you gamers and computer addicts is press the pause button, get out of your chair or off the sofa and take a little break!
