China does it again.. This is two-year-old Cheng Cheng, and he is reportedly addicted to alcohol.
Cheng prefers wine and bottles of beer to milk, according to the Shanghaiist, and is known as ‘Little Winebibber’ by local media.
His parents are being investigated by local authorities after he was pictured drinking from a bottle of alcohol and they could now place the toddler into permanent care.
He allegedly first tried alcohol at 10 months when his father dipped his chopsticks in some wine for him to try.
Cheng can drink a bottle of beer without any noticeable effects, according to his parents, and throws tantrums if they do not give him beer.
‘His eyes are always on the alcohol bottles. We can only try their best to store the bottles in a place which in not seen by him,’ explained his aunt Cai Teng.
‘As sometimes he is really noisy, we have no options but let him to try a little bit of wine.’
Cheng’s aunt insists the family will no longer give the toddler any more alcohol, with a meeting set to determine the child’s future this week.
