This is upsetting. A South Korean couple was arrested for starving their baby to death, reportedly only feeding him once a day after marathon sessions at an internet cafe. What was keeping them so busy? Their other, virtual baby.
Yeah. The couple, who met on the internet (warning sign?), dutifully raised a young girl named Anima in the virtual world of Prius Online, a sort of South Korean Second Life. Not so dutifully raised was their real daughter, a prematurely born infant who only received powdered milk feedings as an afterthought following her parents' 12 hour days at the local internet cafe.
