Drunk or ill
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.
