Warsaw, Feb 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Polish man was saved from freezing to death by the amount of alcohol that he had in his body. When doctors later used breathalyzer to test the alcohol in his body, they were blown away by the figure that they had.

Aleksander Andrzej, was found almost naked in sub-zero degree temperatures. The police found the man sleeping in only his underwear on a bench in the Warsaw Park. The temperature was -5C when he was found. He was immediately rushed to the hospital.

At the hospital, the doctors told the police that the man managed to survive due to the amount of alcohol that he had in his system. The man’s system had 1,024 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml volume. The legal limit of alcohol for drivers in the country is 35mg and doctors believe that anything above 300mg is dangerous. The man had more than three times that limit.

Luckily, doctors at the hospital believe that the man will make a full recovery pretty soon.

The story perfectly gives meaning to the age-old adage that says “what kills one man may save another man.”
