Young Father Tries to Kill Newborn Son with Rum

The victim was born with Down syndrome and several holes in his heart, according to the report. The child was at the hospital because of breathing difficulties and had been admitted Oct. 16.

Fortunato said doctors discovered the child’s blood-alcohol content of 0.289 after he had a seizure Sunday.

A level of 0.08 percent is considered presumptive evidence of drunken driving. For those younger than 21, a reading of 0.02 percent is presumptive evidence of drunken driving.

The amount found in the baby’s blood suggests that 28 percent of his blood had been replaced by alcohol.
