What can be more enticing for a Friday evening than putting your feet up, grabbing some snacks and enjoying a good old gaming bash? For some, this is the definition of a perfect Friday night. But what happens when this kind of activity leaves you with let’s say a few broken bones? A guy playing Fallout survives a car accident, after jumping out of his gaming chair.
Let’s back out a little in order to get our facts straight. Gaming night, plenty of snacks, comfy chair and Fallout 4: almost romantic, don’t you think. The unlucky gamer, by the name of Ben Rose, was setting up his rig in order to enjoy a Fallout 4 evening.
In just a few moments, Rose thrown out of his chair after a Hyundai Sonata decided to pay the gamer a little visit. According to the police reports, it would seem that the driver wanted to badly to hit the breaks, but instead ended up on hitting the gas pedal even harder. The result: the car steered off the streets and bashed into Rose’s house.
Fortunately, the veteran gamer was able to escape certain death, by dragging himself away from harm’s way. According to Rose’s testimony, it was the chair that saved his life. After the car broke to the wall and hit the chair, Rose was able to get up and place an emergency call.
Now, according to the doctors who have taken Rose’s case, it would seem that the gamer did not escape with only a few scrapes and bruises. It would seem that Rose has several broken vertebrae and a sliced Achille’s tendon. What can we say? Game developers have gone over the top with this virtual reality thing.
But the doctors assured us that young Ben Rose is going to be just fine, although his recovery will not be swift.
Meanwhile, his gaming buddies have set up a GoFundMe account in order to help Rose get back on his feet. The site managed to amass more than 10000 dollars, money which will be used by Rose in order to pay for his medical bills and to repair the damages caused by the reckless driver.
All we can do now is wish Rose a swift recovery and hope that the Hyundai’s driver will learn the difference between the gas pedal and the brake pedal. If all goes well, Ben Rose will be back on his feet in no time and will be able to blow some more heads out there in the Wasteland.
