200 proof packs a punch

Japan Today reports that two Russian crew members of a Cambodian-registered freighter died and two others were hospitalized after drinking alcohol for industrial use, the Japan Coast Guard said early Saturday. The coast guard said Sergey Nadtochy, 45, and Daurenbay Dzhetenov, 38, died. Two other crew members complained of diarrhea and headache and were taken to a hospital in Hachinohe, Aomori Prefecture. The two surviving crew members said they and the two fellow crew members were having drinks believing the substance was drinkable alcohol, according to the coast guard.
