A YOUNG man from the es Pinaret Centre for Young Offenders in Marratxi was admitted to hospital after drinking cleaning products.
The Department for Social Services and Cooperation reported that his life was not in danger and that the liquid he ingested was not corrosive.
He was reportedly cleaning his room, which is done weekly, and took a few sips of a floor-cleaning product. Staff at the centre rushed him to hospital.
Earlier this month, a boy of 17 died at the same centre in a fire in his room, which is still being investigated.
