The quite brief article at http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/159087.html[/url] talks about how "Single father Chan Sing, 31, left the girl alone in the street for an hour after staff told him children were not allowed inside the arcade" and "He then sat her in a restaurant with a drink for three more hours while he continued playing games before staff called police to track down the father." The article goes on to say that "Chan admitted to child abuse and was ordered to do 120 hours of community service."
I am glad that nothing really bad happened to his daughter. If you are interested, Kotaku (the "Gossip, news and leaks for obsessive gamers" site) also has an article about this at http://kotaku.com/gaming/bad-parenting/hong-kong-father-abandons-daughte..., along with quite a few comments from the site's readers afterwards.
