A 4-year-old is in critical condition after overdosing on cocaine Saturday in Beloit, Wisconsin.
Capt. William Tyler said investigators do not yet know how the boy got the drug.
“We have spoken to both parents. Neither has been able to provide any plausible explanation on how the child got cocaine,” Tyler said.
Police were notified about the boy after his parents brought him unconscious to Beloit Memorial Hospital late Saturday afternoon and tests showed a “fairly high” toxicity level for cocaine, Tyler said. The child was later transferred to a children’s hospital in Milwaukee where he remained Monday.
Tyler said Child Protective Services removed a 5-year-old child from the home where the 4-year-old fell ill.
What a tragic story. The kid should have knew his limits.
