Submission + - Depressed teen’s cry for help heard via Xbox (gamepron.com)

UgLyPuNk writes: A 14 year-old Canadian boy is being credited as potentially saving the life of a fellow gamer, following his quick response to his friend’s online cry for help.

According to police statements, the Canadian had logged on in late February when he noticed his online aquaintance – a 14-year old Texan – was “feeling pretty down on himself, feeling pretty worthless”. The Canadian asked his parents what they thought he should do about the situation, and they promptly called the police.
