According to Chatham-Kent police, on Saturday, a 34-year-old man made comments to another person with whom he was playing an online video game. That person was concerned about the man’s wellbeing and contacted the customer service department of the gaming company, who in turn reached out to local emergency dispatch.
As a result, the 34-year-old man was taken to hospital by ambulance.
