Makeshift Hospital Set Up For Drunk Teenagers At Underage Disco
A make shift hospital had to be set up outside an underage disco in Cork for drunk teenagers.
According to the doctor who arrived at the scene, some were so intoxicated on arrival last Friday, they needed medical help to breathe.
Dr. Jason van der Velde said, 'Their blood pressure was so low that they had no means to manage their own airways and if left alone they probably would have died'.
Three unconscious teens were taken to hospital by ambulance, and up to a dozen were treated in a field hospital set up on the grounds of Bandon Rugby Club.
Dr van der Veld described the scene on arrival as like 'an ancient Roman Vomitorium' with teenagers vomiting into buckets.
He said that children were drunk on arrival after disembarking specially chartered busses, 'we had taken out of the socks of these kids plastic bottles with neat vodka'.
Gardai were also called to the scene who then called the parents of the children involved.
Bandon Club Rugby say it's engaging closely with Gardai and the relevant authorities in relation to the incident.
