Kota Tinggi (Johor) Malaysia -  A two-year-old boy died after he accidentally drank liquid metal polish which had been stored in a mineral water bottle at his home.  The polish had been brought home by the boy’s uncle in the mineral water bottle for polishing a bracelet.  The toddler was spotted by a family member holding the mineral water bottle and crying.  He was rushed to the hospital when he started having spasm but died while being given treatment.
