Modern Warfare 3 marathon leads to hospitalisation of teenage boy

According to a CBS report, a 15 year old boy from Columbus has been hospitalised for dehydration following a four day Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 orgy. The teenager apparently collapsed – having already fallen over three times – after a four day gaming session during which he left his room only to visit the toilet and get snacks. He is expected to make a full recovery, but his mum took his Xbox 360 away. Seriously guys: everything in moderation.
