"Drinker wakes up in a morgue after being declared DEAD when he passed out downing vodka in Russia... and heads straight back to the party"

By Jennifer Newton for MailOnline

"A drinker who was declared dead after downing too much vodka in Russia woke up and found himself in a morgue.

"And rather than go home to sleep off the after effects of the alcohol, the man went straight back out to re-join his friends. 

"The man had been at a party in the Khansanky region in Russia's far east, drinking vodka.

"After over indulging on the spirit, he passed out and when paramedics arrived they pronounced him dead and arranged for him to be taken to a local morgue.

"He was placed in the mortuary freezer as the facility was filled to capacity with dead bodies.

"But soon after, the man started to come round and was taken aback to find himself in new surroundings.

"According to local media reports, he pounded on the freezer door and pleaded for help before a security guard reported hearing noises to doctors.

"When they opened the door, they found the panicked man who ran from the room before he was questioned by police and then released.

"Aleksey Stoyev, a police spokesman told Russian newspaper Khasanskiye Vesti: 'That night the local morgue was filled to its capacity, the bodies were not only on the shelves, but also on the floor of the freezer room, where our 'dead' man was allocated."

Well, that explains it.  I'm 1/4 Russian.  My mother's father was a Cossack.  They can drink for days

Vodka is safe and clean, compared to the water in Milwaukee's Harbor - and most likely Racine's....

Milwaukee harbor a 'hot spot' for bacteria resistant to antibiotics

Muck at the bottom of Milwaukee's harbor is a "hot spot" for the growth of fecal bacteria resistant to antibiotics, a University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute study found.

E. coli bacteria resistant to multiple antibiotics are more common in harbor mud than in untreated wastewater flowing to the Jones Island sewage treatment plant, according to a team of scientists from Marquette University, the Medical College of Wisconsin and the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

And the resistant bacteria are more common in the mud than in bodily fluids collected from patients at the Medical College. The research team's report, "Detection of multi-drug resistant E. coli in the urban waterways of Milwaukee, WI," was published in the online journal, Frontiers in Microbiology.

"Our biggest concern is that we are creating hot spots in the environment for antibiotic-resistant bacteria," said Krassi Hristova, assistant professor of biological sciences at Marquette University and a member of the research team.

Scientists on the local team tested bacteria in muck collected at four locations: one in the outer harbor outside the Jones Island pipe for discharging treated wastewater; and three in the inner harbor, where the city's three rivers receive pollutants carrying bacteria from agricultural and urban runoff, as well as bacteria from combined sanitary and storm sewer overflows and improper sanitary connections to separate storm sewers.

Tests found that drug resistance in the bacteria was most prevalent for widely used antibiotics, including erythromycin, sulfamethoxazole, aztreonam and ampicillin.

Exposure to the lurking bacteria through swimming, wading or other activities could become another way that residential and agricultural overuse of soaps, detergents, drugs and other products containing antibacterial compounds will come back to bite the public, Hristova said.

When resistant bacteria from the environment contact skin or enter a person's body, they can transfer genes enabling antibiotic resistance to bacteria residing in mucus or in intestines, according to Hristova.

I would NEVER swim or wade in the foul smelling and garbage laden waters in Racine's Harbor or the stagnant and stinky Industrial Canal which courses through Racine. Every time Racine gets a substantial rainfall, the feces laden water from the Harbor is swept out and back to North Beach! Far too many Boaters dump their raw sewage and garbage into the Harbor!
