A 2-year-old boy from China, Cheng Cheng is now the center of an investigation after authorities received reports that the boy consumes an exorbitant amount of alcohol.
Cheng Cheng allegedly tried wine when he was 10 months old, after his father gave him a sip to stop him from crying. Since then, the baby has had full bottles of beer and screams for alcohol when his parents try to offer him any other drink.
While doctors have expressed extreme concern over the boy’s health, the boy’s family have just joked about the boy’s alcoholism.
“At that time, all of us in the family have already thought that this child can really drink a lot when he grows up,” his aunt Cai Teng said lightly. “As sometimes he is really noisy, we have no options but let him to try a little bit of wine.”
“We will not let him drink or touch alcohol anymore as we afraid that it will affect his growth,” she later added.
