An Addiction To Halo & XBox 360 Kills Budding Game Designer

An addiction to the video game Halo which was played on an XBox 360 has been credited with contributing to the death of a budding game designer.The 20 year old youth was killed by a blood clot caused by playing Halo on his Xbox for up to 12 hours at a time.

Doctors in the UK who conducted a  post mortem in an effort to identify how the youth died revealed that Chris Staniforth, who was recently offered a place at Leicester University to study Game Design, was addicted to the game Halo and that he suffered a deep vein thrombosis.

Doctors said it was most likely triggered by sitting in one position for long spells.

Stunned dad David, told the Sun newspaper “He lived for his Xbox. I never dreamed he was in any danger”

He added “As a parent you think playing computer games can’t do them any harm because you know what they are doing.”

According to his father Chris collapsed seconds after telling a friend how he had been experiencing a strange sensation in his chest.

Over the weekend a  UK coroner confirmed DVT had caused Chris’ death and it was cited on his death certificate.

He did not have a history of ill health and had no underlying medical complications.

DVT is a blood clot which develops in the legs or lower torso, often when the suffer’s movement is restricted for long spells.

If the clot travels up the veins to the lungs, it can cause a fatal blockage known as a pulmonary embolism.

DVT used to mainly strike passengers on long-haul flights who sat for hours in the same position.

But in recent years it has increasingly been seen among those who sit for longs spells in front of computer screens.
