Binge Drinking Killing People

Binge Drinking Killing People

One more death in Laos, a country of South-East Asia, following a revelry night has concerned authorities about possible consequences of binge drinking. It is being said that details are still to be looked for.

The death of 40-year-old Darwin man Kane Scriven was confirmed by the Department of Foreign Affairs. It has been informed by the deceased man's unnamed friend that the mishap is a result of his drinking for a night in Laos.

Mr. Scriven had gone to Darwin for a trip and otherwise, he was a worker at Work Boats Northern Australia. The report says that he is not the only one to face such consequence after drinking, rather 19-year-old Liam Davies from Peth also had died last week as he had drunk, thereby getting methanol poisoning.

Also, Denni North, 33, tended to die when drank heavily last week lying unconscious in Bali beside a pool. A similar case was also seen in Melbourne, where Sebastian Eric Faulkner, 21, fell from ninth floor after drinking and died.

It is thus that sales of adulterated drinks abroad are being urged by Foreign Minister Bob Carr to be banned. "We would like to make people aware of the risks associated with consuming locally brewed drinks where you cannot be certain of the quality", said Liam's family.
