Anyone see the story about the college kid from I think SUNY Geneseo who died Sat from "alcohol poisoning" they say.......I just heard on the news he had been drinking from Wed till Sat when he died and his Blood Alcohol Content was supposedly .55!! ....though I have to wonder here......BAC is achieved by having a (live) person blow into a breathalizer..... how did they do that unless maybe he was alive when they first got there and they got it before he died.....and if he was bad enough to die shortly after, his "blow" could not have been 100%.....I gotta wonder what his BAL was......I would think they would get one....can they after someone is dead?...I would think so......in my experience in psych ER the BAL shows even higher in comparison.........That is REALLY high!!!!! CRAZY!!!! Scary. I hope maybe a lesson to other binge drinkers!! Sad he had to die, so young.
