Twins drown while father is gaming

A Fostoria (Ohio) man pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection to the drowning-deaths of his 10-month-old twins. On August 7, Gregg J. Kleinmark, 24, left his sons unattended in a bathtub for 30 minutes while he played a AC/a,!A"computer gameAC/a,!? three rooms away. One report suggests that Kleinmark was playing a Game Boy Advance, which as we know, is portable and could have been just as easily used in the bathroom while supervising the infants. Kleinmark is facing up to 10 years in prison.

The man's wife, Rachael Kleinmark, has since filed for divorce and obtained a protection order against her husband. Gregg Kleinmark, wracked by guilt and remorse, has tried to commit suicide twice since the deaths of the twins. He told Channel 13 he visits their graves every day.


And this is the case of an American, Gregg J. Kleinmark, 24, who, according to, is facing up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter. According to the police report, on Aug. 7, Kleinmark left fraternal twins Drew and Bryn Kleinmark unattended in a bathtub for 30 minutes, in order to go three rooms away and play on his Game Boy Advance console. However, in the mean time, the two ten-months old kids drowned.
Since then, the man tried to kill himself twice, overwhelmed with guilt. A sentence hasn't yet been pronounced in his case, but it's quite clear that he'll most likely spend a lot of time in jail.
Well, it would seem that the sad truth is that video games so sometimes kill.
