A TODDLER has been rushed to Alicante General Hospital (pictured) in a critical condition after consuming marijuana, police reveal.

The 14-month-old baby is now said to be out of danger and recovering well, but it is not known whether he found the drug and ate some of it himself, or whether it was given to him deliberately.

A family friend took the infant to A&E unconscious at 20.30hrs on Saturday from his grandmother's house, and the National Police were called when tests revealed cannabis in his system.

He was rushed to the paediatric intensive care unit where he has spent the next two days fighting for his life.

The child will not be returned to his parents until the situation has been fully investigated, and they may lose custody of him.

Police say the tot lives with his mother, who is separated from his father, and describe the family as 'dysfunctional'.

The baby remains in hospital and will have to stay there for a few more days until he has fully recovered.
