A five-year-old boy from New Mexico in the United States was so thirsty after being denied water he was forced to drink from the toilet and drink mouthwash, according to the New York Post.
The boy’s history of abuse was uncovered when he was hospitalised with a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit for adults. The young boy told police he was forced to drink mouthwash when he was denied water by his parents.
Authorities also discovered a number of bruises over his body. The boy’s father, 25-year-old Tyriese Howard and his 23-year-old girlfriend, Breya Allen, were arrested and now face child abuse charges involving at least two of the three children who lived at their Albuquerque home.
