Tim Eves enjoyed fishing, played drums in a band, and had an active lifestyle. But one day, while "jogging" on Nintendo's Wii Fit game, right in front of his girlfriend and another friend, he suddenly stopped, slumped on the floor, and he was dead just minutes later.
He just got off the phone with his mom, June, when he died, saying he was playing with the Wii. "We spoke to him on the phone when he was playing on the Wii machine. He told us he had just ordered himself a kebab and was sitting there with a glass of port," she said. "But a little while after he had put the phone down, he collapsed for no reason. It was completely out of the blue."
Tim died March 4th after returning from Portugal, where he celebrated his mom's 50th birthday. "Tim packed so much into the 25 years that even if he had lived another 25 years he couldn't possibly have made any more friends," his dad Alan said.
The cause of death is still unknown, but his family has been told that it may have been Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. It's rather curious though as to what exactly triggered Tim's death, especially when he was doing something that was supposed to be healthy.
