A second person in China has died as a result of the 2014 World Cup.
Following the story of the Chinese football fan who died from sleep deprivation from watching the World Cup, the APF are now claiming that a Chinese college kid has committed suicide after losing heavily in betting on the competition in Brazil.
Chinese state media are reporting that the young man, known only by his surname Lin, leapt from a seventh floor window after losing $3000 betting on the World Cup.
One witness is being quoted as saying, “I heard him say ‘do not force me’ and ‘give me two more days and I’ll return you the money’. He talked on the phone for more than 10 minutes. I saw him hang up and stand up and then all in a sudden he just disappeared.”
