Son jumps to death after knife attack on father

A man seriously injured his father with a kitchen knife and then killed himself on Saturday after an argument over the son's non-stop playing of online computer games, The Southern Metropolis News reported yesterday. The incident occurred in Huizhou, Guangdong, when the father, furious at not being able to pull his 27-year-old son away from the computer, threw an iron teapot at him. The son picked up a knife and slashed at his father's head, then jumped from the sixth-floor apartment. Alice Yan
