His mother Daisha Clark, 26, reportedly tried to stop her child’s cousin from taking the boy to hospital, insisting that he was okay.
Clark told police that she found her son with a piece of plastic and a white powdery substance in his mouth, suspecting that he might have ingested drugs, but said she figured the child would be fine and didn’t think it was necessary to take him to hospital, the Fox 59 report added.
She was arrested late Wednesday night for child neglect and possession of drug paraphernelia. Her baby is alive, but his specific condition is unknown.

Clark was previously arrested in 2015 after she abandoned another child of hers in a car while “sleeping with a male,” after having driven while intoxicated while on a suspended license, The Star Press reported at the time.
She also faces charges for burglary and theft filed in 2014.
