Couple addicted to the internet let their baby starve to death while raising a virtual daughter online

From BBC:

A South Korean couple who were addicted to the internet let their three-month-old baby starve to death while raising a virtual daughter online, police said.

An autopsy showed her death was caused by a long period of malnutrition.

The couple had become obsessed with nurturing a virtual girl called Anima in the popular role-playing game Prius Online.

Some psychiatrists still have doubts if Internet addiction exists but it looks pretty much for real in this video:

  1. Their child should have been checked by a health visitor and taken into care. Do they not have this all over the world? It's a must have in every country.
