A video of a 9-year-old boy in New Zealand has gone viral on social sharing space YouTube as well as on the Internet.

The video which is 4-and-a-half-minutes long shows shocking footage of the child bragging about how he smokes weed and has had 18 cans of whisky and cola given to him by his aunt.

Shot at a skating park in Fairfiled, a suburb of Hamilton in New Zealand, the video also shows the boy holding on to the walls as he walks sluggishly carrying an alcohol can in his hand before he loses his balance and falls to the ground looking all dizzy.

The boy is asked questions by the person who films the video to which he answers slurring. There is a point in the footage when the child is asked what he is doing with the alcohol can and a girl on a scooter comes along to answer that he is allowed as his aunt who lives nearby has given him the drink.

The boy says that he has had 18 cans of booze in the day. When the interviewer tells him his aunt can go to jail for giving a minor alcohol, the child pleads asking the person not to tell the police.

Walking with the interviewer following him the boy goes to a group of youngsters who talk about cannabis to which the boy confesses that he also smokes weed.

Among them is a boy who claims to be the child's older brother and he defends his younger sibling's underage drinking and drugs saying, "He's Maori, he's different." Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand.

The interviewer says the child could die of alcohol poisoning to which the brother who seems not too bothered asks, "Does he look dead to you?"

Towards the end of the video it seems that the mood is very aggressive and so the camera person leaves.

The police was informed and when they went to the park they did not find the boy but managed to find his address and went to his house where they met his mother who seemed distraught.

The local police told the media that they are looking into the matter and will do everything in their power to end the menace of underage drugs and drinking rampant in the area.
