A new trend in killer games?A MAN of 25 collapsed and died moments after playing Nintendo Wii Fit games.
Labourer Tim Eves had been jogging on the spot as he used the machine in his home. Then he keeled over in front of his girlfriend Emma Tuck and best pal Lewis Hickin. Emma, 26, and Lewis, 25, tried desperately to revive him but he was declared dead on arrival at hospital despite the efforts of paramedics.
Tim, a scout leader who enjoyed cycling, fishing and playing drums in a rock band, had been fit and well. The tragedy happened the day he got home to Hopton-on-Sea, Norfolk, after visiting parents Alan and June in Portugal to celebrate his mum’s 50th birthday.It is believed he might have been a victim of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.
June said: “We spoke to him on the phone when he was playing the Wii. He told us he had just ordered himself a kebab and was sitting there with a glass of port. A little while after he collapsed.”
Shocked Emma said: “I love Tim loads and will miss him so much.”
