FREE FIRE: NEWSPAPERS BLAME THE GAME FOR CAUSING THE DEATH OF A TEENAGER IN MEXICO

According to paramedics who went to the house in the Valle de las Flores neighborhood, the minor hanged himself with a rope from a closet. Reports indicate that the teenager had been dead for 20 minutes when medical help arrived.
The teenager's death information was connected to the Free Fire game after the media and local newspapers collected testimonies from some "witnesses " indicating that "Humberto " was playing Free Fire when the fact occurred .
If there were witnesses when the young man was having the supposed tantrum for missing a match at Free Fire, why didn't anyone stop him ? The notes published in both media end with statements asking parents to be careful with electronic games, showing that they are extremely biased.
Again, these are international and renowned newspapers that want to win " hype " over games like Free Fire without really investigating the details that actually led to this tragedy.
