The Dangers of Playing Your PSP in Public

What happens when you are playing a game in the subway and you don’t pay attention? A ten-year-old boy from Milan, Italy found out when he fell off a subway platform and onto the tracks below because he was engrossed in playing a PSP game. Luckily a police officer nearby sprung into action and lifted the boy back up onto the platform.

On a personal note, I have a 10-year-old son and I could see the same thing happening to him. But it wouldn’t matter if he was reading a comic book or playing a video game – sometimes he pays little attention to what is going on around him. It happens.

Anyway, watch the dramatic video to your left. Yes, I’m overselling it.

Thanks to nightwng2000 for the tip.

    At least his negligent use of technology was only endangering himself (and the fellow who jumped down to save him). What I fear are the idiots that text while driving – and there are a whole lot of them.

    Same exact thing happened to a woman in a mall a few weeks ago, except she was

    1) An adult

    2) Texting

    3) Fell in a pool

    4) Got to sue the person who posted the video

    On topic though, looks like the kid is okay, landed mostly on his padded backpack.
