Beijing: Two more Chinese men died due to lack of sleep as they spent their nights watching the FIFA World Cup, bringing the tally to three. A 51-year-old man suffered a heart attack after the Netherlands thrashed Spain 5-1. Elsewhere, a 25-year-old man was found dead hours after the same game, reports EFE. A third man, 39, died while watching Uruguay’s 1-3 loss to Costa Rica after he spent three consecutive days without sleep to watch the games. He suffered from high blood pressure and died in hospital due to a bleeding brain. The match times in China range between midnight and 6:00 a.m. due to an 11-hour time difference between China and Brazil.
