Tyler Rigby, a 15 years old boy from Columbus locked himself in his room to play games on his Xbox for four consecutive days. During those four days he skipped out on all food and fluids, resulting in him being severely dehydrated.
On Tuesday he collapsed right after a brutal Modern Warfare 3 marathon. He was quickly rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors pumped him full of fluids.
Tyler’s aunt, Jennifer Thompson said:
It’s like he was looking at me but he wasn’t there. It was like he was looking through me. We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell.
While Tyler’s mother, Jessie Rawlins added that she thought her son was going to die.
I was very scared. I thought he was going to die. He just fell over three times.
Tyler is safe and sound right now. However, his mother has taken away his Xbox.
The Xbox is gone.
