10 Year Old Saves 3 Lives at 60MPH, Credit for his Reactions goes to Mario Kart

In a switch from the normally dark, cruel, hate-filled news in gaming culture lately, one video game directly attributed to saving the lives of three rather lucky people earlier this week. (Culture)

Wow!!! This is an awesome story! I love Mario Kart and videogames are absolutely not a waste of time. They help develop hand/eye coordination, they help develop the imagination, they help develop problem solving, and they are something the whole family can do together when you can't really go outside because of whatever reason.

politicians will still flip it around into bad news for gaming.
smh.

Except they won't. Hell, I doubt any politicians will say anything negative or positive about this. Let's stop trying to make issues where none exist and focus on the topic at hand, shall we?

How can you recklessly take something over, do something good (save 3 lives) and then then become a poster boy for terrifying actions? If anything they would say he endangered the 3 lives. =\

it wasa joke admiral, learn to relax

@ Wannabe Gamer

Of course it is, but it's just stupid if the boy still SAVES the lives in the joke. You can't really spin it to be a negative when the boy still accomplishes something good.

Anyway, I think they were luck no turtles were involved or things could had ended way differently.

HOLY SHIT!! I have that exact car. I thought I had the only one in existence, seriously.

If it weren't for Winter and Icy roads in Gran Turismo back in the day, I probably would be in some accidents the winters we have here. My instincts already knew what to do when I would lose control, thanks to that game :). This kid is awesome BTW.

Barely has any relevance to video games, but I can see why people are jumping at the story

Video Games:
They save lives.
Kidmyst  +   342d ago
I wonder what the Media reaction would have been if he said he learned if from playing GTA4 when being chased by cops in the game. Good for this kid though, made a quick move and saved lives.
weap0nx  +   342d ago
F*** all the videogame hater out there this kid is a hero because of games. Pick a new topic haters, have a seat.
NeoTribe  +   342d ago
Hate to be that guy but, mario cart has nothing to do with his reaction time. He got lucky and it reminded him of mario kart. Same goes for kids who steal cars and say they got it from gta. It works both ways. Glad he did what he did but lets get real here.
