The man, believed to be in his 20’s, was picked up at the “Chopin road near the old WASCO plant”, a resident of the community told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).
It is alleged that the young man, who is of unsound mind, informed family members that he drank the substance. It is further alleged that ambulance personnel left with the bottle which contained the suspected poisonous substance.
“He was spitting up phlegm,” the resident told SNO.
His condition is unknown at this time.
