Fitness trainer in Jammu lands in hospital due to 'PUBG' online game addiction

JAMMU: The addiction of online game ‘PUBG' landed a fitness trainer in hospital in the sixth such case in Jammu.

As per the reports by National News Agency, a fitness trainer(name withheld) who got addicted to playing PUBG online nearly ten days ago was ultimately admitted to the hospital when he started hitting himself with blows and got injured.

Doctors informed that the patient is unstable and has partially lost his mental balance as his mind is completely under the influence of the 'PUBG' game. He will be kept under observation until he regains consciousness.

They said that the nigh time use of mobile phones can be fatal for children and even adults if remains unchecked.

With the rise in such cases, some locals have also appealed to the J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik to get such "life-threatening" online games banned in the state.

'Player Unknown's Battlegrounds'(PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation. The game begins with up to one hundred players who parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves.

The available safe area of the game's map decreases in size with time thus forcing encounters as the last player or team standing supposedly wins the round.
