while playing on his PSP.

He was walking along, playing on his PSP and was so absorbed in whatever he was playing that he walked right off the platform and onto the train tracks. A police-officer quickly jumped down and lifted him back up before the next train came along.

The boy was ok, just got a bit of a fright.

Yea this kind of thing is becoming a problem, like iPods making people deaf to traffic, texting and walking into stuff, etc

I suppose more things like this will happen in the near future. We have so many things that can totally absorb our attention and make us ignore out surroundings, and it's dangerous. But I would've thought that it was pretty obvious that playing a game/reading while walking around on a train platform was pretty stupid.

Natural selection. Those without the awareness to play/talk/text at the same time as walking/driving/whatever and those without the awareness to avoid the previous class will be killed off. The human race will be stronger.

Like this lady who filed a lawsuit against the mall she worked at for sharing the video of her falling into a fountain while she was texting. Someone should have held her under until she stopped kicking.

That video honestly made my day when I first saw it.
