Ohio, Aug 9 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Tyler Rigsby who is 15 year old stayed up in his bedroom enjoying his video games which caused him to stay locked up in his room, he only came out when he needed to take a shower, use the wash rooms or when he wanted to pick up some snacks in the kitchen.
According to his mother, he stayed up in his room for close to five days. On Tuesday he went with his mother to visit his aunt. His aunt’s house was located just near their home, and when they reached, Tyler fainted three times.
According to his aunt, Tyler was looking at him but it was like he was not concentrating on her, that is where her aunt discovered that there is something wrong with her nephew. While they were talking they heard a big thump and to their surprise it was her nephew who had fainted. His mother, Jessie Rawlins was so much scared because Tyler’s lips were turning into a blue color and his body was turning pale. She quickly called the doctor to prevent his condition from worsening.
