How Playing Starfield Saved a Family’s Lives from Apartment Fire: Many times in video games, you have the opportunity to rescue others and yourself, taking on the role of a superhero. But what if I told you that gaming could also make you a real-life hero, saving lives? This actually happened to a gamer who saved his family from an apartment fire while he was engrossed in a late-night gaming session.
Playing late at night Starfield saved a family’s lives
A player shared on Reddit that Bethesda’s new RPG game saved his life and his family’s too. He mentioned that he had pre-ordered the premium edition to play it early, which started on August 31. On the game’s release day, he stayed up late into the night to play and explore this exciting new game world.
Starfield played a crucial role in saving their family’s life on September 1st. They had eagerly anticipated the game since the trademark rumours of 2015-2016 (with the exact year escaping their memory). To prepare for its release, they had preordered the premium edition and were excited to explore this new gaming universe.
On August 31st, he stayed up late playing a game for the full experience. At 2:26 in the morning, a loud explosion came from downstairs. He stopped playing and checked it out. Opening his door, he saw flames coming up the stairs. Quickly, he grabbed his spouse and cat, rushing them to safety, but they got minor burns.
If he hadn’t been up playing Starfield, they might have been asleep and not survived due to smoke. He thanked God Howard for saving them through the game.
The situation has a touch of irony but remains a serious story. According to the poster, a woman living in the apartment below was using oxygen while also smoking. The explosion they heard was likely caused by the accidental ignition of the oxygen tanks, which provided both fuel and heat, leading to the rapid spread of the fire.
