Student dies while watching horror movie

Sunday December 05, 2010 09:04:40 PM, IANS

Hyderabad: An eighth standard student died Sunday while watching a horror movie with his friends in Andhra Pradesh's Visakhapatnam district, police said.

Prabhakar and his friends were watching the movie at their government school hostel when he suddenly collapsed, a police officer said. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The tragedy occurred at Marikavalasa in Visakhapatnam, about 600 km from here.

Some 10th standard students had brought DVDs of Telugu horror films like "Atma Katha", "Blood" and "Ghost" and were watching them with other students when Prabhakar collapsed.

The student's parents, however, were suspicious about his death, police said, adding that investigations were on.
