Baby Born Drunk: Blood Alcohol Six Times Legal Limit to Drive

span style=”font-weight:bold;”>I am lost for words on what to say about this awful story.

A baby boy in Poland was born drunk. So drunk that doctors decided to check his blood-alcohol level because his mother was drunk when she arrived to give birth.

What they saw frightened them.

A doctor tells the PAP news agency that 12 hours after he was born, the boy had a blood-alcohol level six times the legal limit for driving. That means he was drunk before he was even born. He weighed five pounds, seven ounces at birth.

Doctors say the baby will likely suffer permanent neurological damage from his mother’s drinking.
