Viral Video Shows Kids Continuing To Play CrossFire Despite Flood
A viral video posted on Facebook shows several kids playing CrossFire despite the flood in the pisonet shop they’re staying in.
Posted last Friday night, the video garnered 20k+ reactions as of this article’s writing. It was even reposted on Reddit under the r/nextfuckinglevel subreddit where it was subsequently deleted by the moderators.
“Mga taga dito lang din samin na mga laging nag lalaro,” Niko Samson, owner of the pisonet shop, revealed. “Kilalang kilala ko [kasi] halos kapit bahay ko silang lahat.”
The kids on the video are shown playing CrossFire whilst the owner telling them the pisonet units will be taken upstairs.
“Yung lugar kasi namin mabilis talaga tumaas ung baha dahil sobrang baba lang. Eh yung ulan nun sobrang lakas napapagitnaan ng ilog namin na galing Marikina at Antipolo,” Samson explained as to why his shop was flooded.
Although people applauded the kids’ “gamers never quit” attitude, some netizens were concerned about their safety, especially the possibility of the kids being electrocuted due to the flood. However, Samson told us that they immediately shut the computer units down as soon as they discovered the kids playing. He even sent Esports Inquirer a video as proof.
“Kung maririnig nyo sa video, ayaw umalis ng mga bata diba? Pero pinatay ko talaga para maka-iwas sa trahedya. As a computer engineer, alam ko din naman na pwedi mag cause ng ground yung ganyang bagay. Kaya after ko mag take ng video, inalis ko talaga agad.”
He hopes that this would enlighten his bashers who only know half of the story and revealed that the kids are fine. “Okay naman sila. Hindi sila pinagalitan. Yung isa jan tinulungan pa ako mag akyat ng mga kompyuter kasi sobrang bilis ng pagtaas ng baha.”
