"A Latvian man has recovered after drinking enough alcohol to kill two normal people.
He said he had got drunk because his wife left him - and his wife left him because he drank too much.
Police spokeswoman Ieva Zvidre said an average person would vomit at a level of about 1.2, lose consciousness at 3.0 and stop breathing at around 4.0.
She told the BBC she did not know whether the man who survived 7.2 parts per thousand had set a world record.
But she added: "I don't think this is a good way to get into the record books.""
