    How sad.One has to be careful at home when there are small children around.Four eyes too are not enough.Best is whatever alcoholic ,any poisenous things should be kept out of childrens reach ,best locked ,even medicines or alcohol.I had a experience once as my so was only about 3years ,a friend came to visit.we offered a glas of red wine ,was not strong.she drank half of it ,and went after some time.As we went to door to say goodbye ,and close the door,just with a left eye saw son drank rest of the wine.was about 50ml left.He started vomitting whole night ,no drop of water could remain in his stomach.Thank God after sometime it stopped but was very tired and sick.Thank God no more he was alright.
    Atleast doctor could have given some first aid before sending him to another hospital .That might have helped him .Heartfelt sympathy to the family.RIP little one.
