Furkhan’s sister Fiza Qureshi who was sitting beside her brother said, “My brother was playing PUBG with some of his friends. Suddenly, he started shouting ‘carry out the blast..carry out blast’. Then he threw his earphones and mobile and cried saying ‘Ayan I will not play with you’. I lost the game because of you.”
“The excitement of the game might have caused a surge in adrenaline causing cardiac arrest. I appeal to the children to stay away from such games as excitement could cause cardiac arrest,” Furkhan’s father told HT.
