Imagine a life-threatening flood taking place and you trying to finish your call of duty match. That’s what happened to Sio Samson an Internet café owner from the Philippines. Samson own a small café in the town Cainta, Rizal province. As a Typhoon flood began flooding his café where kids come to game and chill. Samson did his best to evacuate the premises but once he approached his game room the kids seem unfazed as the water began to build around them.
Water and electrical appliances aren't typically two things you want to mix together even if you are a junkie there is a time when you should stop playing and right now I think is that time but do whatever makes you happy I guess. pic.twitter.com/lYq04BB3u1

“We didn’t know the flood water would rise that day so when I saw them, I immediately took action and told them that I have to transfer the equipment to a higher place. After the video they also stopped and left none of us were hurt. Fortunately, all of the electric cables in the shop were above the water level and plugged into power sockets that were all above head height.” A familiar feature in areas prone to floods finished Samson (per yahoo news).
The Philippines itself is no stranger to floods, according to eduzarus, “The perennial problem of flooding in the Philippines is partly attributed to geographical attributes. Around 421 principal river basins are dispersed across the archipelago and an average of 20 typhoons enter the count annually. The storm slowly headed toward the east coast of the china sea not lasting very long in Cainta but built momentum in the Luzon Island.

This would would probably explain the guy’s comfortability still playing multiplayer battle games in the midst(mist) of a deadly rainstorm. Though many others may have suffered trying to remain safe.
