Toddler Critical After Drinking Drano From Sippy Cup at Meth Lab
MILTON, Fla. — A 3-year-old boy is in critical condition after drinking what is believed to be Drano that was being stored in a sippy cup at an apartment where meth was being cooked, reports the Pensacola News Journal.
The boy’s mother Victoria Lauren Cain, 27, her boyfriend, Jonathan Wayne Glass, 36, and five others were in the apartment at the time cooking meth, according to the report.
Glass is charged with one count of cruelty towards a child/abuse that causes great bodily harm or disability, three counts of possession of a harmful drug without a prescription, four counts of drug possession without a prescription, one count of opium or derivative trafficking and one count of possessing or using drug equipment.
Cain is also facing charges related to this investigation.
It is her fourth arrest in Santa Rosa County, records show.
The unidentified boy is showing signs of improvement and is expected to survive.
However, Assistant State Attorney James Parker says the toddler has likely suffered permanent injuries.
“He’s a long way from being released from the hospital,” he said.
