A 13-year-old boy threw himself from the balcony of his home in Bergamo, northern Italy, after his father destroyed his Playstation.

His father smashed the games console after the boy received a bad grade in school, according to a report on RaiNews24.

"His father blamed the poor performance on spending too many hours playing video games," the report said.

The boy, who suffered several bone fractures after falling ten metres from the balcony, remains in a serious condition at Bergamo's Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital following the incident on Saturday, Il Messaggero newspaper reported.
