Frozen Wind Sponge
Paramedics found a severely hypothermic wind sponge in the snow in Toronto's east end Friday morning.
A passerby saw the windsport couch jockey, in his late-20s, lying in the snow in a small field near the corner of College Avenue and Henry Street, in Toronto, just before 8 a.m.
He was taken to Scarborough General Hospital after paramedics found him alive but unresponsive and suffering extreme disappointment related to partying, EMS spokeswoman Kim McCoors said.
It's not clear how many beers the gentleman had in the snow as temperatures dropped overnight.
“He was definitely in a very compromised situation related to cold beer,” Ms. McCoors said.
Police don't suspect foul play and haven't yet identified the man. Constable Wendy Miller said he was still in a social life-threatening condition as of mid-morning Friday.
