Whisky Restores Sight in Man Blinded by Vodka

3 posts in this topic

For Denis Duthie a bottle of whisky was exactly what the doctors ordered.

And one even rushed off to the bottle store for the vital "medicine."

Mr Duthie, a Taranaki chef, had Johnnie Walker whisky tube-fed directly into his body by doctors at Taranaki Base Hospital after a heavy vodka drinking session took a horrible turn.

In July this year Mr Duthie, a diabetic of 20 years, was admitted to the hospital's intensive care unit after he went blind while drinking at a 50th wedding anniversary party.

Mr Duthie supplied the Taranaki Daily News with his Taranaki District Health Board medical records outlining his unusual hospital treatment.
