A teenager in Columbus, Ohio was hospitalized this week after playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for four days straight. Tyler Rigby was rushed to the hospital for dehydration after his gaming binge.

“It’s like he was looking at me but he wasn’t there. It was like he was looking through me,” Jennifer Thompson, Tyler’s aunt, told news station WCMH. “We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell.”

Tyler will be ok. The hospital pumped him full of fluids, and, presumably advised him to take a drink every sometimes when he's playing games. There was one casualty in the incident, however: The teen's game console.

"The Xbox is gone,” Rawlins said. 

The teen's K/D ration was not revealed, but that kind of dedication probably results in some serious skillz. (Yeah, I spelled "skills" with a "z." It's Friday and I'm getting crazy up in here.
