Sad story. I don't think the "game", if you can call it that, or Nintendo could be sued for something like this, though.

Sad yes, most definitely. Condolences to the family. And let the lawsuits commence. :roll:

Woah. Even though I'm studying to be in the health field, I have never heard of SADS. I guess it was something that couldn't be prevented. That is rather tragic.

Coincidentally, sudden cardiac death is my specialty. In young people, it is often caused by a disorder of the heart muscle or its electrical system, or anomalous origin of the coronary arteries. With timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment, a significant proportion of these tragic deaths might be avoided.

This is tragic, though certainly not Nintendo's fault. From the sound of it, it could have happened at any time. I won't be surprised if Wii games start coming with yet another medical warning in the future, though. :(

He died playing Wii fit? Pure coincidence I say. He could have died playing Pokemon all the same.


Man, that's how I wanna go. Clutching a game controller.
