Couple Raises Virtual Child and Starves Real One 11

Posted by samzenpus

NeutronCowboy writes "According to CNN, a South Korean couple was arrested for allowing their baby to starve to death while they were out at an internet cafe. One of their activities there: raising a virtual child in the online game Prius Online. While a South Korean professor calls it a case of Internet Addiction, it's probably more a case of bad coping mechanisms. They were jobless and had apparently little to look forward to."
