Drunk or ill

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

IF you see some­one very in­tox­i­cated, and if they do not seem to have come from the pub, you should con­tact po­lice or the am­bu­lance ser­vice straight away. Po­lice re­ceived a call about a 71-year-old man who ap­peared af­fected ei­ther by de­men­tia or a sub­stance, try­ing to get into a car. The man was ac­tu­ally suf­fer­ing from in­sulin shock and was trans­ported to Moss­man hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. Po­lice said this in­ci­dent was a timely re­minder that peo­ple act­ing in­tox­i­cated could ac­tu­ally be show­ing symp­tons of a stroke or di­a­betes.
