How many times have you watched your kid so totally engrossed in a handheld game that the world around him didn’t exist?
In Italy this week a 10-year-old boy walked right off an underground train platform and onto the tracks while playing his PSP. The Daily Mail reported that an off-duty police officer jumped onto the tracks to lift the kid to safety with another train due to cross the electrified tracks in less than a minute.
This kid is no abnormality. I know my kids have walked into doors and walls playing their games. And many times I’ve had to say, “Put that game down so you can pay attention to where you’re walking.” I guess I’m just lucky my state doesn’t have underground rail.
