Toddler poisoned by pesticide still in critical condition

OFFICIALS at Fudan University Children's Hospital said today that a 2-year-old girl who was poisoned by pesticide is still in critical condition although her life signs are stable.
The girl was rushed to the hospital yesterday afternoon from Jiaxing, a city in neighboring Zhejiang Province.
"She is on a breathing machine and is under close observation," said Liu Hua, a hospital official. "Doctors are still doing tests on her."
She said the girl's parents will bring the pesticide which the girl drank by mistake yesterday morning for the hospital to verify and prescribe the right treatment for her.
Her grandparents bought the pesticide known as "402" from a small store and put the small bottle on their moped within the reach of the toddler.
