A two months old baby girl with a blood alcohol content of 0.364 was dropped off at a hospital in Colorado Springs, CO. The alcohol content is more than 4 times the normal limit. The baby is expected to be ok, despite the negligent conduct of the adults providing her care. It is hard to imagine that this was a case of an accidental ingestion by the child due to its age. The baby was dropped off at the hospital by the mother’s boyfriend. I guess they at least did that so that the baby had a chance of survival.
The baby’s mother is the focus of the criminal investigation. But police said it’s been difficult to figure out exactly what happened because the mother is telling conflicting stories.
