On 28 May, a 16-year-old young boy named Furkan Qureshi lost his life when playing PUBG on his smartphone for 6 hours. It is said the boy died from cardiac arrest. He is a student of class 12 in Madhya Pradesh, India. According to the boy’s father named Haroon Rasheed Qureshi, the incident occurred when he and family, living at Nasirabad, Rajasthan, had attended a marriage in Neemuch. And because the family has not informed the police, they haven’t launched any probe so far.
The father said to PTI that before the boy became unresponsive, he screamed “blast it, blast it” when his character died in a battle.
“He was a very active lad. My son was so engrossed in PUBG game that he played it from Sunday evening to early hours of Monday. He slept for a few hours and after getting up had his breakfast and then played the game for six hours at a stretch,” the father said.
The boy had to be hospitalized after being unresponsive when he was playing PUBG but couldn’t overcome and died, according to cardiologist Ashok Jain.
According to another cardiologist in the city named Vipul Garg, today children become addicted to mobile battle games, which makes their feelings run high because of excitement and thrill. And they are easy to have heart failure. He added children should stay away from this kind of mobile games.
Today, the famous mobile games have been criticized for their harmful effects on children’s studies, conduct, language, and overall behavior.
It is known that at present, the police force has prohibited PUBG in some Gujarat-based cities as the game results in violent behavior among youth and children.
In addition, PUBG Mobile began to launch a new function which intends to help to enhance a healthy behavior for gamers to make sure that young gamers don’t spend a lot of time on playing this game.
