A Korean couple in their twenties left the baby alone while they played World of Warcraft at a net café - sadly the baby died of suffocation. Both mother and father were arrested for child neglect.

The pair left their home at 4pm to go play the game and the couple didn't return home until 9pm when they found their four-month old daughter lying on her stomach, tragically having died of suffocation.

"We were thinking of playing for just an hour or two and returning home like usual, but the game took longer that day," the Incheon couple told police.

The police told reporters that investigation told them that the couple played World of Warcraft whenever they had time.

"It's unfortunate, because the tragedy could have been averted if the couple had just left their daughter with Yu's mother-in-law, who lived upstairs from them," said the Police. "We booked the pair on criminal charges, judging that when you consider the situation, they were responsible for their daughter's death."

It's certainly a sad tale. Interestingly the Police aren't pointing the blame at gaming, after all, the couple could have neglected the child by watching TV or any other number of pastimes. One wonders what the Daily Mail would have made of the story if it happened in the UK though.
