aalst - A Belgian of 21 went to the hospital of Aalst last weekend. The man had at least 6.4 percent alcohol in his blood. Apparently, his parents found the performance of their son remarkable, the Belgian newspaper notes Het Laatste Nieuws. 'His previous record was 6.2 percent,' they said.
Certainly thirty glasses of beer are needed for a man with normal posture to get such a high alcohol content. 'Such a high alcohol concentration can lead to cardiac and respiratory arrest, resulting in death,' says a toxicologist in the newspaper. 'Getting into coma can already be 4.5 percent. '
