A 67-year-old man recently suffered a heart attack and died outside of a rail station in Singapore not long after capturing a rare Pokemon. The man’s widow told reporters that he was playing the popular smartphone game Pokemon Go! just before his death.
She said that her husband played the game near the train station on a regular basis, and that he went there after a birthday meal held for a family member.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force confirmed that they transported the man to Singapore General Hospital.
"There was a sudden call from the hospital after 6pm,” she said, according to Asia One, "They (the medical staff) told us to come see him one last time. At that moment, I knew things were bad."
Her husband had a history of heart disease, and the wife said she immediately suspected he’d had a heart attack when the hospital contacted her.
Before the heart attack the man was able to catch a second generation creature called 'Granbull' along with a rare Pokemon called a 'Lapras,' according to his phone’s GPS records.
The deceased was a Level 28 player and had captured over 200 Pokemon.
