A doctor in Freeport, Ill., performed a potentially life-saving procedure Monday, April 29, after extracting a piece of crack cocaine from the nose of a 2-year-old boy.
Police say the boy's parents became worried when their son was unusually quiet Monday afternoon, prompting them to visit the doctor, The Rock River Times reports.
While the unnamed doctor examined the boy, he noticed a substance was blocking the child's breathing. After the substance was extracted from the boy's nose, it was tested in the physician's office. The substance tested positive for crack cocaine, police reported.
The parents have been questioned, yet no charges have been filed in the case. The investigation is continuing. The names of the parents and doctor have not been released.
Freeport is in Stephenson County, approximately 60 miles west of Rockford, Ill.
