Man dies playing with his Wii

A 25-year-old man dropped dead while playing Wii fit on his Nintendo Wii, in what must be one of the most chillingly ironic deaths we've ever heard about.

Tim Eves, from Hopton on sea in Norfolk, collapsed out of the blue in front of his girlfriend and a friend while playing the popular game, and it's believed that he could have been a victim of the seemingly completely random and terrifying Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

'We spoke to him on the phone when he was playing,' said his mother, June. 'He told us he had just ordered himself a kebab and was sitting there with a glass of port…but a little while after he had put the phone down, he collapsed for no reason. It was completely out of the blue.'

Before Nintendo's lawyers get anywhere near us, it had nothing to do with the game, ok?
