Baby Born Drunk

Thursday, June 12, 2008

A baby in Poland was already shit-faced when he's seen the light of day, after her mother had consumed some serious amounts of alcohol before going to the hospital to give birth.

"A blood test showed that the 38-year-old woman had a level of 1.2 grammes of alcohol at the time of birth."

A level of 1.2 grammes of alcohol per 1,000 grammes of blood is the equivalent of a bottle of wine or two liters of beer for an adult drinker but its impact is compounded in a new born's tiny body.

As a result, the infant was found to have a level of 2.9 grammes, police said.

The blood-alcohol limit for drivers in Poland is 0.2 grammes.
