Hardcore Gamer Mom In China Gives Birth In an Internet Cafe, Goes Back to Gaming
Sometimes, you just need to finish a raid.
Um, this one’s for anyone who questions the fact that women can be hardcore gamers. In Nanchang, China, a 24-year-old pregnant woman sat playing a video game in an internet cafe while waiting for her boyfriend to pick her up. Then she gave birth. THEN SHE WENT BACK TO PLAYING HER GAME.
As reported by Uproxx, the young mother had left home after a fight with her family. No one even knew she was giving birth in the cafe until they heard the newborn crying:
One patron offered the woman warm water to clean herself but she declined. Instead, the 24-year-old woman from Shandong insisted on resuming her online game.
Shocked by this, some patrons wrapped the baby with a piece of cloth and called for an ambulance.
Whoa. That’s pretty hardcore. So, not only did she give birth without making much noise, but she went back to gaming – because sometimes you just really need to finish a raid. After the ambulance came, she eventually did get to a hospital where she was met by her boyfriend and family.
But WHAT GAME COULD SHE POSSIBLY HAVE BEEN PLAYING THAT SHE COULDN’T TEAR HERSELF AWAY FROM?! The world may never know.
