Booze can kill!

Straight-A student Rhona Tavener killed by vodka binge

A “bright, vivacious” straight-A student died after drinking around half a litre of vodka at a friend’s house party, an inquest heard today.

Rhona Tavener, 16, was more than five times over the drink-drive limit when her heart stopped. She collapsed unconscious on the driveway and friends who decided to take her home to sleep off the alcohol had to perform CPR when she then stopped breathing.

If you read the whole story, there is something missing. For one, it sounds like this girl was under way more stress than she should have been, and second, it sounds like everyone is lying about something. Her parents had no idea who their daughter was. Her friends are covering something up. The fact that she managed to hold down that much vodka without throwing up tells me that she wasn’t nearly the stranger to booze that they want us to believe. A constitution like that comes with experience.

Still, it’s a shame.
