Man who drank beer from river develops massive ‘pregnant’ hernia
ON March 20, 2012, John Macdonald, 59, went on a fishing trip on the Brisbane River. He took his rod, bait and beer. When he dropped the booze into the river he soon retrieved it. But after drinking it, he fell ill. And he got worse. After a week he was booked into Caboolture Hospital for urgent surgery.
He then fell into an coma.
After three operations, he work up. And he saw the massive hernia on his stomach. He says he needs a further six operations.
What was on the beer? Any ideas? And what does this say about the five-second rule?
