Article from 20 May 2014 The Portugal Resident newspaper

From today's 'Portugal Resident' newspaper

UPDATE: 14-month-old baby “removed” from Irish holidaymakers suspected of negligence
 
“A 14-month-old baby girl is recovering in hospital after being forcibly removed last night from her drunken Irish parents on holiday in a hotel in Albufeira.
Details are scarce but according to SIC notícias witnesses sounded the alarm after seeing the child’s mother staggering with the baby in her arms on an 8th floor veranda of Hotel Paraíso.
The mother is reported to have been so drunk that she was “hitting the walls” as she swayed.
The child was then reported to have been removed from the hotel swimming pool with scratches to her legs and appearing to have been ‘sedated’, said SIC.
Witness complaints brought the GNR to Hotel Paraíso at around 8.30pm last night, and the child was swiftly removed and taken to Faro Hospital.
The parents have not been detained, continued the SIC report, but the Public Ministry has been informed of their alleged negligent treatment and the case has been referred to the Faro Children's Court.
A spokesman for Faro Hospital told us late this afternoon that the child was fine, with no health problems.
Her parents were with her and wanted to take her home with them, said the spokesman, but the decision now remains with the court.
If the court decides the little girl is in danger, she would be referred to the Refúgio Aboim Ascenção - but this may not happen, said the spokesman as these situations are "relatively common" with visiting holidaymakers and the courts "usually decide" to return the children to the care of their parents.
Refúgio director Luís Villas-Boas intimated the same.
“The problem is that there aren't enough laws to prevent this kind of situations,” he told our reporter Michael Bruxo. “Parents who commit these kinds of acts should be severely punished.”

The only way I think (I have never tried) would be to cut and paste half the article in one post and send, then cut and paste the other half and put it in a second post.

UPDATE: New “British shame” as tot removed from drunken parents

In another humiliating lapse by British parents “drunk on holiday” in the Algarve, a 14-month-old baby girl was taken into care this week and the spotlight once again focused on the iniquities of the so-called child rescue system.
While here in Portugal, children of visiting holidaymakers are removed in critical situations - but almost always returned to erring parents within days - the situation in Britain can be chillingly different.
“Sons and daughters can be removed from their parents for almost no reason at all”, a British-based children’s rights champion fighting to “save” five Portuguese children told us this week.
And as the drama played out over the baby girl in Albufeira - removed from her parents on Sunday night for alleged mistreatment - Portugal’s child rights campaigner Dr Luís Villas-Boas agreed that laws protecting children in Europe needed bringing in line.
“In Britain, if we had a case like the one here this week, the parents would never see the child again,” he said. “In Portugal, things are very different.”
Villas-Boas was talking on the morning that Correio da Manhã alleged the parents - believed to be from Northern Ireland - had sedated the child and thrown her into a swimming pool at the Hotel Paraíso in Albufeira.
The Irish Mirror said only that the parents had been “drinking all day”, while the Irish Sun wrote: “Witnesses sounded the alarm after allegedly seeing the child’s mother staggering with the baby in her arms on an eighth-floor hotel balcony. Cops acted after claims the mother was so drunk she was swaying back and forth.”
News on Tuesday (May 20) - the day the family were due to fly home - was sketchy.
The child had been taken to Faro Hospital on Sunday night, but on Monday a spokesman assured journalists that she was well, and that her parents wanted her back.
“Obviously hospital is not the place for a child who is well,” Villas-Boas pointed out. “But we are waiting for a decision from the court.”
It is not the first time British, or indeed Irish, holidaymakers have lost children to the Portuguese authorities after being discovered allegedly drunk and disorderly.
“There have been five or six cases over the past 20 years,” Villas Boas told us. “That is not a huge amount - not at all,” but the cases, nonetheless, focus media attention on the Algarve for all the wrong reasons.
In the summer of 2008, two cases of drunk and seemingly negligent British parents hit the headlines - but in both the children were returned to their parents, as seems likely in this latest drama.
As this story broke a Portuguese family in Britain was being kept apart by British authorities. Read the full report in this week’s paper edition of The Resident, out this Thursday.

He's 22? He'd have been 15 at the time.
Highly unlikely to have been responsible for her death, I suspect.

Perhaps as when he used the word "purport"
Gerry used the McMalapropism "predatory" instead of "precocious"
