Fiji’s Police Force is requesting parents and guardians to keep harmful substances and tools out of reach of young children.
This follows two incidents in the Northern Division involving young children yesterday.
Fiji Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said that a 30-month-old baby consumed 8 Panadol tablets when she was at home with her mother. She was taken to Savusavu Hospital for treatment and sent home afterwards.
In another incident a 17-month-old baby drank a bottle of fuel injection cleaner while at home with her mother. She was also taken to the Savusavu Hospital for treatment and sent home.
Naisoro said young children are inquisitive and therefore it was imperative for parents and guardians ensure that all harmful substances are kept well out of their reach.
“It is unfortunate to receive cases of this nature and we are once again reiterating the importance of better supervision of our young children,” Naisoro said.
