Though his parents previously vowed to get help, 2-year-old Aldi Suganda Rizal -- the Indonesian toddler who caused a sensation in May when video footage of him smoking a cigarette turned up online -- continues to indulge his nicotine habit.
CBS reporters tracked Aldi and his parents down in a tiny fishing village on the island of Sumatra. As if on cue, Aldi appeared, cigarette in hand, alongside his mother, Diana. The new footage is perhaps even more disturbing than the original clip. In several shots, the toddler -- said to have started smoking at just 11 months -- uses one already lit cigarette to light another.
"If he can really quit smoking, he will definitely be a very healthy boy," Diana says. She noted her son is currently enrolled in a government-sponsored rehabilitation program, but continues to throw tantrums and even vomit when he can't smoke. "I can't stand seeing him hurting himself. What can we do but accept it as it is?"
Authorities have called Aldi "a victim of his environment," as Indonesia is the only country in the Asia-Pacific region that has yet to ratify the World Health Organization's framework on tobacco control.
