09-11-2012

Counterfeit liquor has claimed its 32nd victim in the Czech Republic after an autopsy on Friday confirmed that a 53-year-old man from Olomouc died of methanol poisoning. The man collapsed while seeking medical attention on Monday, and died while being taken to hospital. Doctors said he also suffered from a cardio-vascular condition, which contributed to his death. Experts warn that methanol-related deaths will continue to appear for months after the authorities discovered the source of the poisonous bootleg liquor.
