British Man Dies After Trying To Drink All 21 Cocktails On Menu During Trip To Jamaica
27 Jun 2023
A British man has died after trying to drink every cocktail on the menu of a bar during a family trip to Jamaica.
Timothy Southern, 53, from Staffordshire, managed to drink 12 of the available cocktails before he passed away in his room at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean in Saint Ann, Jamaica.
Despite the death being ruled “alcohol related” toxicology reports could take three years to come back from Jamaica.
Mr Southern’s family slammed the attempts of the medical staff to save him detailing the ordeal at his inquest:
“He was on his back choking. I put him in the recovery position and screamed for an ambulance. He was making a gurgling sound. As soon as he was in the recovery position he vomited. I was shouting his name with no response,”
“When the nurse arrived I said had an ambulance been called and she said ‘no’. I thought she would take over. But that was not the case. I noticed he was starting to lose temperature. I checked his pulse and couldn’t find it,”
“She said he had a pulse. I was starting to lose it. I got a full look at his face and I thought he had passed away.”I said, ‘Don’t just sit there looking at him, start CPR’. She only gave him chest compressions. Maybe if she had known what she was doing, maybe he would still be here,”
“The service and treatment he received was disgusting.”
