A young couple in Taiwan were accused on Friday of letting their baby girl starve to death while they obsessed over online games, reported the Apple Daily newspaper. The couple, in their early twenties, reported the girl's death earlier this week and the police arrived to find the infant reduced to "just skin and bone with sunken eyes". They noticed a gaming website on the computer monitor next to her crib. The baby weighed only 4kg, half the average weight of a one-year-old.
