Dahl had been playing the first-person shooter on his school's LAN with his friends, and while taking a little break in his cafeteria, he collapsed. He was rushed to hospital where they discovered his kidneys had failed, where he slipped into a coma. Dahl had consumed an insane 135 ounces of energy drinks, which nearly cost him his life.

The gamer spent 13 days in hospital, and now requires drugs to control his high blood pressure. One of the doctors who treated him, Anne Kathrine Duns, said: "It was severely life-threatening. The central nervous system, cardiovascular system, lungs and kidneys were affected." The doctors couldn't pinpoint the reason as to why his kidneys failed, as he had no previous medical conditions, but they said "for not we are attributing this to the consumption of large amounts of energy drink."
