Man drowned after excessive drinks
A man drank five times the legal limit for
drivers then accidentally drowned in a bath.
Bhavesh Kumar, 41, died in Arundel Drive, Dartford.
He had 428 mg of alcohol in 100 ml of blood. The safe drive
limit is 80 mg of alcohol.
Coroner Roger Hatch said at his inquest in Gravesend that
Mr Kumar had drunk a fatal amount of alcohol.
"In cases of excess of 300 mg it is characterised by comas, and
with 400-plus with death," he said.
"Mr Kumar had an extremely high alcohol level sufficient on its
own to cause death."
He recorded a misadventure verdict.
