A 16-year-old student died of cardiac arrest while playing PUBG for hours
Uncontrolled PUBG has spread like a disease among youngsters; one that cannot be cured.
It has spread to the extent that not only is it leading to bad discipline, education and behavior, but also it is taking lives now. A 16-year-old from Neemuch town in Madhya Pradesh fell prey to PUBG on 28 May. According to his father, he had been playing the game from six hours.
“Furkan started playing the game right after lunch and it continued for over six hours. Just before he collapsed, he became very agitated and started shouting at other players”

Furkan Qureshi was rushed to a hospital but he was announced brought dead. His sister, Fiza Qureshi, who was sitting alongside him, narrates the incident-
“My brother was playing PUBG with some of his friends. Suddenly, he started shouting ‘carry out the blast…carry out blast’. Then he threw his earphones and mobile and cried saying ‘Ayan I will not play with you’. I lost the game because of you.”
Furthermore, according to Furkan’s family, he used to swim and had no known previous heart problems.
“The excitement of the game might have caused a surge in adrenaline causing cardiac arrest. I appeal to the children to stay away from such games as excitement could cause cardiac arrest,” cardiologist Dr. Ashok Jain who tended Furkan quoted.
