Baby boy starves to death; drunk parents forgot to feed him

MIRI: A baby boy, less then a month old, starved to death Thursday after his parents allegedly forgot to feed him because they were too drunk.

The baby died in the intensive care unit of Miri Hospital Thursday morning and a police report was lodged.

Police now want to question the parents, in their early 30s, from a longhouse in southern Sarawak who came to Miri to work and were now renting a house at a low-cost housing scheme along the Sarawak-Brunei highway some 12kms north of the city centre.

Concerned relatives had found the baby unconscious in the house and had rushed him to the hospital at about 3am on Wednesday.

Miri Deputy Police Chief Supt Ismail Paduka Idris confirmed Thursday that the baby had died in the morning.

"We (police) are investigating claims that the parents had indulged in a prolonged drinking spree and had neglected the baby in the process.

"Initial probe showed that the baby might have been so severely neglected that he suffered fatal consequences. We want to find out whether this was due to carelessness or criminal neglect.

“We will be taking statements from the parents and from neighbours and relatives to find out what actually happened,” he said, adding that police have yet to detain the parents.

Asked if there were any signs of physical abuse on the baby, he said police are still investigating all aspects.

The couple have another child, a three-year daughter.

Not just stupid!!! I was wondering, if the baby is less than one month old, the mother is still in confinement rite? so, how can she be soooo drunk until she forgots about the baby??? Maybe the parents abuse the baby!!! Should be burn in HELL!! Inferno!!!

insane couple!

It never was. Cheers ~

how come that “concerned relatives” never heard the baby crying?

human are so corrupted nowadays…even by just ALCHOHOL…useless
those couples dunno wats death is…
letting the baby cry and starve to death is one unforgivable act!!!

the low cost area is so uninhabitable the only way to feel good is to drink
so small, noisy, hot…worse living conditions than Bombay Slums

too much artificial happiness.XD

oh yes… carlsberg rules!!!

dont play play! make baby easy, take care baby is so difficult. -___-
on a serious note, these ppl not worth to be called parents. God give them precious little life, they dint take good care, dint give love and food, yet selfishly indulge themselves in drinks. Really mo ngan tai!
