A 16-year-old student leapt to his death from his family's 20th-floor flat in Shing Kei House, Kwai Shing East Estate, Kwai Chung, yesterday, after losing an online computer game.


The youth apparently became hysterical after his online soldier opponent disarmed him during a war game, a police source said.
