There have been several claims that people will die from overwork like Miwa Sado1 this is related to overwork but death came from suicide. Gamers are like Brian Vigneault2 which died after 24h of gaming which seems health related. Is it possible to work till you die of exhaustion, wouldn't the body colapse into sleep before?

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kar%C5%8Dshi, An otherwise healthy would probably not die from a single instance of overwork, though. – Eike Pierstorff Dec 28 '18 at 19:29
  • Death from exertion alone isn't found many mammals, some exceptions sort of are antechinus and some other marsupials. – daniel Dec 28 '18 at 19:34

    From exhaustion? Yes. From "work"? It depends on how you define work. Dying while playing video games is not caused by overwork, but from a myriad of factors. – forest Dec 30 '18 at 5:50
