Sometimes tragedy strikes when you least expect it; Twitch streamer Brian ‘PoShYbRiD’ Vigneault was found dead after a 24-hour Charity livestream on Twitch.

It’s speculated that he passed due to heart complications from severe sleep deprivation. The average human can survive a few days without food and water but serious lack of sleep is a recipe for disaster. The popular World of Tanks streamer was also known for chain smoking and drinking on stream, which probably contributed to his possible cause of death.

It’s not the first time such an incident has happened either, with people literally being found dead in front of their computers after marathoning their games for hours and hours on end. It’s sad as much as it is a cautionary tale, nobody should attempt a 24-hour livestream unless they’re are sure (like checked by a doctor sure) that their bodies can take it.

Here’s the known information about the incident so far, via a mod posting in PoShY’s Twitch chat:

Known info so far: Around 3:30AM CST Poshy said he was going for smokes and left the stream running, He never returned. around 11AM CST we were all still here assuming he had fallen asleep. around 19:00 Sorelor sees him online in discord and messages him. The person who responded identified himself as a detective and asked Sore to call him. Sore spoke wiht him, Called the Virginia Beach police department to confirm the detectives identity. The detective confirmed Brian had passed.

The charity stream was to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

If you knew Poshy and would like to send your condolences, you may do so at his Twitch stream which has been turned into a memorial. Rest in Peace.
