This story is really sad. I believe that internet addiction is a real ailment just like any other addiction, but there is no excuse for this extreme behavior. I can’t believe nobody stepped in. Where were the grandparents? Did neighbors not hear the baby crying when the parents were at internet cafes for 10 hours at a time?
The sad irony of this story is that while their baby was slowly starving to death, they were on the internet all these hours raising a “virtual baby”.
