Li Hao was in his final year at a college in China’s Henan province. He had to complete the rules of internship. If he wants to get his graduation certificate next year in June, he has to do an internship in some institution. Thus, he was working in an online game streaming company based in Henan province.
Li Hao, who lived in a rented house in China’s Henan province, died on November 10. He was sleeping after work and was breathing very fast. When he went to wake up the sleeping man, he was unresponsive. Hence, his classmates immediately admitted him to the hospital. However, the doctor declared that the student Li Hao was dead before he was called to the hospital.
Li Hao, a graduate student, had an internship contract with a private organization that required him to live stream 240 hours over 26 days. In addition, 15 short videos were to be uploaded every month. It was essential for him to reach this goal to earn a salary of at least 3 thousand yen every month. Li Hao worked the morning shift until October. On November 5, he was asked to work the night shift. He had to be involved in live streaming continuously from 9 pm to 6 am. He did this work for 5 consecutive days.
From October 15 to November 10, Li Hao did a total of 89 live streaming sessions, the South China Morning Post reported. Li Hao, who was already working the morning shift, did not agree to work the night shift. However, the father of the deceased student said that the company offered a good salary.
The company that employed Li Hao denied the allegations against him. Any student doing internship said that we used to get only commission based on the amount of gift received from viewers during live streaming.
