Chinese Gamer Nearly Burns to Death in his BMW Playing on His Phone

We all know the Asian stereotypes that go around these days and, whilst it’s not right to judge people by them, some of our fellow humans make it really hard to think outside the box.

One such ‘human’ nearly burned to death this weekend in Nanjing, China. He was so involved in the game he was playing on his mobile phone that he was completely oblivious to the fact that his car had caught on fire and there were flames coming from beneath it.

According to QQ Tech (via GamesInAsia), a passer-by, going by the name of Wang, spotted the man inside the car and warned him that he might be in danger and that he should get out before things got worse.

As it turns out, the man snapped out of his trance and got out just in time as the vehicles was engulfed in flames, the firefighters that arrived on the scene being unable to put the fire out in time to save the car.

While we don’t know exactly what caused the fire, we’re also amazed of how someone couldn’t notice that the car they’re driving (or sitting inside) is on fire. How concentrated can you be to not notice that there plenty of smoke coming from beneath your car?

This is just one of the stories related to ‘crazy Chinese gamer’ news that are now hitting China on a daily basis. Other are far worse and include knives through skulls and murders, all attributed to video games and the addiction that comes with them.

On the other hand, the South Koreans have been master gamers for quite a while now and the cult that is growing around them is bigger every day. Yet, you don’t hear of such events in the Korean state. After all, it seems like education might be the problem here and not video games.
