Gamer continues to play Fortnite during tornado

America is known for its tornados as the country is hit by them quite often during tornado season. You would expect that when the weather changes and a tornado arrives people with hurry to safety but in some cases not so much. You know when you phone rings while you are in the middle of an intense game and you refuse to answer it because you will most likely die? Well, this is not the same thing because in this case if you refuse to listen to the warnings of an oncoming tornado, you will probably die. One Fortnite player in Greensboro almost did.

A young man on Phillips Avenue continued to finish off his game of Fortnite as the tornado started to sweep through his street. "I was sitting at home playing Fortnite, and all of a sudden, I hear a bunch of noise," Anton Williams told WXII 12's Mallory Lane. "I look out the window and I started seeing the roof come off houses in front of me. Next door, strong winds blew a family's home away from its foundation".

This all sounds rather life-threatening if you ask me but Anton Williams did not budge. "I sit back down because I only have a couple people left in my game, and I was going to try to finish the game, but then it started getting worse and I started to see the power lines come down, so I told my sister and my nephew to come to the bathroom."

While Anton eventually stopped playing his game, probably due to the power being cut, while sitting in the bathroom with his family he was still thinking about the game. "Honestly, I was thinking about the game, but I was hoping everybody was OK around me," Williams said.

I think the moral of the story here is winners know when to stop. Or something like that.
