Dilip Kumar, who works in a pharmaceutical manufacturing unit at West Delhi’s Moti Nagar in India, accidentally inhaled methanol while working in the factory. This caused partial loss of vision and other severe side effects. When basic medical aid failed, his employers rushed Kumar to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.
There, doctors administered 30ml of rum every six hours for two days to neutralize the toxicity caused by methanol, a deadly chemical. Simultaneously, dialysis was also conducted to save his kidney from further toxicity.
