Drunk man 14 times over the limit

It's gotta hurt...



Drunk man 14 times over the limit

From correspondents in Riga
December 19, 2003

LATVIAN police say a drunk picked up with around twice the blood-alcohol level considered deadly had probably set a world record but would wake with a hangover to match.

The unidentified middle-aged man was unconscious but stable after a blood test showed 7.22 parts per million of alcohol.

A police spokeswoman says an average person would vomit at around 1.2, lose consciousness at 3.0 and stop breathing at a level of about 4.0 parts per million.

The spokeswoman says the alcohol reading is one for the book of Guinness World Records.

Emergency ward head Martins Sics says there's no record of anybody having survived such a dose, even in neighbouring Russia which takes pride in its vodka-guzzling traditions. SICS says the man won't remember a thing when he regains consciousness.

>a blood test showed 7.22 parts per million of alcohol.

This would be parts per thousand, I guess.

Look, 2 weeks ago in Austria, 7.4 :

translation is a little rough but:


Man with 7,4 parts per thousand in the blood saved
The medical profession trusted their eyes not and/or believed in a defect in the measuring instrument, when they evaluated the blood test of a man from free city: Incomprehensible 7.4 parts per thousand! Additional tests confirmed however this value. The man might have tried to take itself with hard beverages the life.

After past experiences one assumed already five parts per thousand are deadly alcohol in the blood for humans. Measured 7.4 parts per thousand with the man from free city are to be regarded therefore nearly as medical miracle.

Tried suicide?
That becomes the more plausible, if one considers that the drunk one was fully accessible already one day after its admission into the Linzer Wagner Jauregg hospital again. It might have had the intention commit suicide with liquor and other hard drink, which it took in shortest time to itself.

The man was transferred for further treatment into a mental hospital and was again left in the meantime the hospital.
