PSP playing boy plunges onto railway

Cop stops kid becoming a Darwin

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

If you didn't think platform games could be hazardous to health, just ask the boy who plunged onto a railway line while engrossed in his PSP.

The youngster was captured on video walking off the edge at Lorento station in Milan while distracted by his console, a video on Italian site YouReporter shows.

The blasé bambino was snatched to safety by an off-duty policeman before the train pulled in. This grainy CCTV footage shows the incident in full.

The courageous cop, Alessandro Micalizzi, says he acted instinctively, making sure not to touch the rails as he leapt onto the tracks and helped the scared kid back up.

Had he failed to do so, the screen-absorbed sprog might have become a Darwin Award winner, the contest that champions accidental attempts to clean the gene pool.

The child's mother and sister, who were with him at the time, obviously didn't spot the accident waiting to happen. I wonder if he'll be getting a PSP 2 for Christmas? ®
