Gold Coast Baby Rushed To Hospital After Accidentally Taking 'Significant' Amount Of Meth

A baby in Australia has been rushed to hospital after accidentally taking meth.

Authorities say the 12-month-old ingested a 'significant' amount of the drug ice at an apartment complex on the Gold Coast.

The baby's 20-year-old mother has been charged after police launched a month-long investigation.

Acting Detective Inspector Troy Penrose, from the Vulnerable Persons and Domestic Violence Unit, told the Courier Mail the baby 'partially lost consciousness' and started vomiting after taking the illegal drug.

"It's (the allegations) deeply concerning to police as it would be to any parent. People do have a duty under law to not expose their children to harmful environments. Where they do and police are advised we will certainly investigate the matter as a priority," he said.
