67-year old catches Lapras while playing Pokemon GO, dies instantly from a heart attack
Now, there are bound to be a number of hypochondriacs out there who are going to carry a defibrillator with them whenever they are out playing Pokemon GO. Before you do that, consider that Weiming's wife revealed that her husband had a cardiac based disease. While she suspects that the excitement of catching Lapras triggered the fatal attack, had his heart been healthy, it would not have been affected by his capture of Lapras.
The irony here is that Pokemon GO has led many game players to get off the couch and actually exercise a little. Overall, it is a sad story and we send along our condolences to the widow. As for the rest of you Pokemon trainers, don't let this incident stop you from going after Lapras. If you are concerned, you can get a check up with your cardiologist. If the Doctor asks why all of a sudden you feel the need to have these tests done, don't mention Pokemon GO or Lapras to him. Otherwise, he might feel the need to send you to another Doctor, the kind that deals with your mind.
