A 40-year old man from Poland has smashed the record for blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The sample from his blood showed an amazing score of 1,374. For the record: specialists believe that a BAC-score of 0,4 can already be lethal. Officers of the municipal police found the man unconscious and lying on the road in the village called Tarnowskiej Woli in the province of Podkarpaciu. When they did the blood check they couldn’t believe what they saw. However a second sample in the hospital confirmed this ‘highscore’.
The incident took place at the 24th of July of this year, but the police of the municipality Nowej Dęby didn’t make the information public until yesterday (Wednesday 7th of August). The man will be able to enjoy his new record, since he survived the incident. The previous highscore of a living person according to Polish media came from another Polish guy. This 45-year old man from Maków-Kolonia had a BAC-score of 1,23. To be honest we missed this one when we published some remarkable BAC-scores some months ago.
We would like to be the first to congratulate the new record holder. Not just with his amazing test score, but also that he will live to tell the story. Now this is a fact that he can share with pride at the next party he attends.
