2-Month-Old Baby Dropped Off At Hospital With 0.364 Blood Alcohol Content

Four times the legal limit (in many states) of .08.

A 2-month-old girl is expected to be OK despite having a blood-alcohol content that was more than four times the legal limit for adults who drive.

OK? Really? A 2-month-old exposed to what is often a lethal dose of alcohol and it will be "OK"? No brain damage at all? No stunting of brain or body growth?

The baby girl and her mother were dropped off at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs early Sunday morning by the mother's boyfriend. The man took off and now the Colorado Springs Police Department is searching for him.

The infant was brought in with blood-alcohol level of 0.364, investigators said.

The baby's mother is the focus of the criminal investigation. But police said it's been difficult to figure out exactly what happened because the mother is telling conflicting stories.

Oh, well, that would seem to clear her. If she's telling "conflicting stories," who can say what happened?

As Kathleen Carroll of the AP would say -- hey, a lot of crazy shit is going down, why sweat the details?

An emergency room doctor was previously "in shock" that a seventeen-month-old survived a .195 BAC level.

"Not to be comatose at that stage, they maybe would've had to have a tolerance," said Dr. Kerry Broderick with Denver Health.

So imagine what's going on with this poor kid.
