COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – An Ohio teenager is recovering after he collapsed following a four-day video game marathon.

Tyler Rigsby, 15, only took breaks from playing Modern Warfare 3 to use the bathroom, pick up snacks and shower, Tyler’s mom told nbc4i.com.

After he collapsed, Tyler was taken to the hospital and treated for severe dehydration. Mom has decided to take away Tyler’s Xbox.

“The xBox is gone, this is a close call,” said Tyler’s mom Jessie Rawlins.
