Just an hour after his birth, a baby boy in Broward County died from the drug flakka, our news partners at WPTV report.

According to police reports, the baby’s mother was hospitalized for more than 4 weeks while pregnant, but refused prenatal care. She was released on June 29 and gave birth to her son about a week later, according to NBC Miami.
