10244962 story Couple Raises Virtual Child and Starves Real One 11 Posted by samzenpus on Monday March 08, 2010 @10:56AM from the world's-worst-dad dept. 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."
