Death by Xbox

A 20-year-old was killed by a blood clot caused by playing his Xbox for up to 12 hours at a time. Chris Staniforth's father David, of Sheffield, said: 'He lived for his Xbox. I never dreamed he was in any danger.' 'As a parent you think playing computer games can't do them any harm because you know what they are doing. Kids all over the country are playing these games for long periods - they don't realise it could kill them.' Chris collapsed seconds after experiencing a strange sensation in his chest. Chris's friend called an ambulance - but paramedics could not save him. 'I'm not for one minute blaming the manufacturer of Xbox. It isn't their fault that people use them for so long. But I want to highlight the dangers that can arise.' 'Playing on it for so long is what killed him - and I don't want another child to die.' -- THE STAR/ANN
