those eastern europeans sure know how to put away the booze:
The man says he is not sure how much he drank
A Latvian man has recovered after drinking enough alcohol to kill two normal people.
Tests showed that he had 7.22 parts per million of alcohol in his blood, while four parts per million would usually be fatal.
The man was taken to intensive care on Wednesday, but was well enough to talk to journalists on Thursday.
He said he had got drunk because his wife left him - and his wife left him because he drank too much.
Police spokeswoman Ieva Zvidre said an average person would vomit at a level of about 1.2, lose consciousness at 3.0 and stop breathing at around 4.0.
She told the BBC she did not know whether the man who survived 7.2 parts per million had set a world record.
But she added: "I don't think this is a good way to get into the record books."
