Teen Commits Suicide After Father Stops Him From Playing League Of Legends To Study


0

School pressure can often be a negative aspect of a child’s life. Not all schools are conducive for learning, and not all learning methods are for everyone. One student even turned to video games, in this case, League of Legends, to deal with stress. Unfortunately, when his father deprived him of the said video game to force him to study, it led to his suicide.

A 15-year-old Taiwanese boy named Cheng was known as an optimistic kid who performed well in school. He lived in Changhua County, Taiwan and was usually a regular high school kid who loved to play the highly popular battle arena game League of Legends.

Trouble began when the exam period drew closer and the pressure to get great exam scores was mounting on students. Cheng was no exception and sought ways to deal with the stress. So he began playing League of Legends more and even became increasingly temperamental, even rebellious. This was something his father did not like.

Cheng’s father got angry at him for playing video games at around 9:30 p.m. when he could have been using the time to study for the upcoming school exams. Unfortunately, Cheng was distracted by League of Legends and failed to respond properly to his father. So his father abruptly shut the computer down, causing Cheng to also become angry.

His father then left him in the room, hoping that he would study. However, Cheng did not, and instead, threw himself from the third-floor window, committing suicide. His father was completely unaware of what he did and he was only discovered bleeding on the concrete pavement by his grandfather later that night.

They were able to rush him to the hospital but he was pronounced dead a few hours later. After Cheng’s tragic death, the school officials notified the students and the faculty, where many attended the teenager’s funeral.
