Man loses five toes from overdrinking

A man, surnamed Zhang, sits amid liquor bottles with his right foot bandaged at Dongyuan village, Suiyang district of Shangqiu city, Central China's Henan province, May 30, 2011. Zhang, 43, is known to drown his sorrows since he fractured his hipbone in a work accident and his wife left him in 2001. The tragic day came as he found five toes had fallen off his right foot when he was seeking medical advice at a private clinic the other day. A doctor suggests overdrinking could be the reason for Zhang's misery, because it can result in angiitis, in which case the veins are blocked, destroying the sensitivity of the foot. [Photo/CFP]
