4-month old Florida baby poisoned

FREEPORT, Fla. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after a 4-month old baby was allegedly poisoned in the Florida Panhandle.

Walton County Sheriff's Office and state child welfare officials responded to a home in Freeport on Saturday after receiving reports that a baby boy was struggling to breathe.

The baby was airlifted to a Pensacola hospital and was on a ventilator Saturday. No other details were given.
