The lady who took 400 g of baijiu.
A 57-year-old lady in Hubei province who threw back two bottles of baijiu passed out while attempting to swim in the Yangtze River and was rescued after drifting 75km across Huangshi city, Hubei province to Ruichang city, Jiangxi province.
The woman, Shen Ailan, said she felt muddled as soon as she entered the water. She closed her eyes and drifted for 10 hours, according to reports, and when she came to, the sky had turned dark.
Li Chunfu, the rescuer in Jiangxi.
A Ruichang villager named Li Chunfu said he heard a voice calling for help. He quickly ran out of his house and jumped in to fetch the woman who was drifting towards the riverbank.
Li warned Shen not to swim after drinking, as she likely won’t be as lucky in the future.
The 10-hour trip supposedly involved crossing a few raging torrents, but Shen survived safe and sound, which amazed tens of thousands of web users.
