Public service announcement: if you feel like you need to puke, puke. A Nanjing man was hospitalised when, trying to stop himself from vomiting, he ruptured his oesophagus.
According to the Modern Express, the 30-something man had to be rushed to Jiangsu Province Hospital where doctors carried out emergency surgery.
The man began to experience a sharp pain in his abdomen after drinking two bottles of beer at a friend’s party. He later told doctors that he needed to throw up but prevented himself from doing so out of embarrassment.
“The patient has a very low tolerance for alcohol and used his glottis, or vocal cords, to suppress his vomit, causing high pressure in his oesophagus,” said a doctor at the hospital.
Again, if you feel like you need to puke, puke.
