The "Avengers: Endgame" film has proved too much for one fan to handle.
A 21-year-old moviegoer in China cried so much at the end of the film that she began to hyperventilate. After having breathing issues, the girl was rushed to a hospital and given oxygen.
A doctor that treated her said, "I saw that the patient had been breathing heavily, and according to the description from her peers, we thought that her crying had caused ‘hyperventilation,'. We immediately gave her oxygen and relaxed her emotions by appeasement, reducing her hyperventilation symptoms."
The record-breaking film has grossed over $1.2 billion globally on its opening weekend, with $350 million of that being from the U.S. alone. Many theatres have stayed open around the clock to accommodate the demand.
Elizabeth Frank, AMC executive vice president of worldwide programming, said in a statement, "With a desire to satisfy as many Marvel fans as possible on Thursday and through the weekend, AMC's programming team is reviewing ticket sales theater by theater and adding showtimes later and later. In fact, there are multiple AMC locations that will be operating around-the-clock from Thursday night through Sunday."
