Man Goes Into Coma After Drinking Cold Water On A Hot day

A parched man in China drank a full carton of cold beverages from a refrigerator, as well as 30 popsicles and a bag of fruit, causing himself to fall into a coma.

According to Ettoday, the man named Mu Yifu, worked in an air-conditioned environment and experienced symptoms such as dizziness and chest tightness after consuming all that grub. That same night, the man from Zhejiang province was sent to Yiwu Fuyuan Hospital by his family.

At the Hospital, the 38-year-old man had his blood sugar level taken and they were off the charts. After 5-6 subsequent tests, his blood sugar levels could not be lowered.

While at the hospital, Mu gradually lost consciousness and fell into a coma. He was urgently transferred to the intensive care unit for further observation and treatment. After being in a coma for a week, he finally stabilised and was under observation.

Doctors urge that people drink boiled water and also say that drinking warm water when the weather is hot cools down your body faster than drinking cold water.
