Drunk man downs concrete


A drunken man ate 250 grams of concrete after a night out because he was hungry.

The man was walking home when he spotted a pail filled with thick liquid inside which turned out to be wet concrete - though he believed it to be a large bucket of sesame paste.

Police received a call from a member of the public, who reported seeing the man digging into a pail of concrete, according to Jiangsu TV.

The man was promptly taken hospital, where his stomach was pumped and doctors said he should make a full recovery because of his timely rescue.
