The video shows an adult pouring a clear liquid from a glass bottle into a cap, bringing it to the child’s mouth in his arms, and then rocking with them.
Police said in a Facebook statement that they launched an investigation into the case after becoming aware of the footage and were working with social services to find the child and get him to safety.
“We are aware of a video circulating on social media of what appears to be an adult drugging a young child with alcohol,” the North Wales Police in Wrexham Town said on Tuesday.
“Please be assured that we are currently working with social services to protect the child.
“We continue to investigate this matter and are no longer worried about the child.”
The relationship between an adult and a child is not reported.
The video sparked outrage from thousands of people online and continued even after the original post was removed from TikTok.
“I saw (sic) this video, the poor thing starts to choke after the injection, and the mother and friend just sit and laugh hysterically at her, she should not be given children!” one woman wrote on Facebook.
“She deserves to be jailed! 100 percent!! This smell is enough to confuse an adult, let alone a child,” wrote another.
“She deserves jail,” wrote another.
“Disgusting video!!! Thank God the baby is safe now,” wrote another.
