Another Senseless Suicide


I couldn't believe it when I read this tragic, senseless, horrible suicide.

The suicide of a young South Korean boy who racked up a huge phone bill playing games on his mobile has prompted local operators into revising their call plans. The unnamed 16 year-old student from the south western Korean town of Iksan toped himself on 15 February after running up a bill of 3.7m Won ($3,830), according to local police.
My heart goes out to those close to him.
