It appears that the designer drug bath salts has struck again. This time the victim is a 17-year-old who is reported to be fighting for his life in a South Florida hospital after he was found lying naked and bloody on a street in the city of Oakland Park last Sunday.
CBS Tampa reports that the teen, a resident of nearby Tamarac, was discovered around 2:30 a.m., “rolling on the ground” and “pulling at” several lacerations on his torso while yelling “bad drugs” and “take me.”
A team from Oakland Park Fire Rescue took the youth to Broward Health North Hospital, where he was diagnosed as having a collapsed lung, a fractured left ankle, a broken collarbone, and cuts to the chest and neck. The boy, whose identity has not been released, was placed on life support.
According to NBC affiliate WPTV a spokeswoman for the Broward County Sheriff’s Office told the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, “The doctor said it was possible he was hit by a car. Deputies found his clothes nearby.” A pair of boxers, khaki shorts and a shoe were found in the bushes near where the teenager was lying, she said.
Investigators have ruled out the possibility that the injuries were self-inflicted. The boy’s parents were notified later Sunday morning.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact Broward Crimestoppers at 954-493-8477.
