Teen Collapses After 4-Day Xbox Marathon

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A four-day Xbox gaming marathon apparently was too much for one 15-year-old Ohio boy.

The boy was so engrossed in playing Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox that he made himself sick.

He's expected to be OK – but his mom has taken away the Xbox.

Dr. Mike Patrick, an emergency physician at Nationwide Children's Hospital, recommended that gamers use some common sense: Get plenty of food and fluids, take breaks for physical activity and get some sleep.
