A one year-10- month old boy is kept un­der ob­ser­va­tion in the Chil­dren’s Ward of the Labasa Hospi­tal. This was af­ter the boy drank kerosene which was in a plas­tic bot­tle on Sun­day mid­day at his home in Bulileka. Po­lice Spokesper­son In­spec­tor Jo­saia We­icavu said the mother of the boy was breast feed­ing her nine month old baby when this in­ci­dent hap­pened. “The boy went into the kitchen and picked up the bot­tle which he be­lieved was juice and drank it,” In­spec­tor We­icavu said. “The boy is un­der ob­ser­va­tion and ex­pected to be dis­charged soon. “Again we we urg­ing par­ents to take ex­tra pre­cau­tions and store up chem­i­cals in la­belled closed lid out of reach from chil­dren.”
