Boy fights with brother over video game, jumps off 50-story building

In Tokyo, Japan, a 15-year-old junior high school student reportedly jumped from the veranda of his 43rd floor apartment to his death late Wednesday night. Police now claim that the boy's death may be the result of an earlier fight over a video game. A woman alerted police soon after she saw a person jump from the 50-story apartment building in Chuo-ku at about 9:10pm, according to a report from Mainiche. When police arrived, they found the boy lying on the ground. He was then pronounced dead at the hospital shortly after. Police suspect the boy committed suicide.

If he did it to himself, then the kid has guts. I couldn't jump a 3 story building.

it doesn't take guts to kill yourself. All it takes is looking at a situation from the wrong perspective. Why would you end the res tof your existence over a video game?

He's going to really be pissed he missed Final Fantasy 13...
