Baby Born Drunk, 15 Times Over Legal Drink Driving Limit
A new born baby was found to be 15 times the adult drink drive limit after its Polish mother got drunk before the birth.
The mother was intoxicated during labor as she gave birth to a baby girl.
Doctors at a hospital in Otwock, on the outskirts of Warsaw, Poland called in police after the clearly-drunk expectant mother checked in to give birth on Monday.
Police spokeswoman Dorota Tietz said: "A blood test showed that the 38-year-old woman had a level of 1.2 gram of alcohol at the time of birth."
As a result, the infant was found to have a level of 2.9 grammes, police said.
