Tyler Rigby, 15, was hospitalized in Columbus, Ohio, after locking himself in his room to play an Xbox game, 'Modern Warfare 3,' for four days.

WCMH-TV reports that Rigby (not pictured here) collapsed and was rushed to the hospital Tuesday after being severely dehydrated.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

Jessie Rawlins, Rigby’s mom, told WCMH-TV: “I was very scared. I thought he was going to die. He just fell over three times.”

Jennifer Thompson, Rigby’s aunt, said: “It’s like he was looking at me but he wasn’t there. It was like he was looking through me. We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell.”
