A 56-year-old man died on Friday night (October 2) while drinking alcohol at a Katoloni area nightclub in Machakos Town.
The man, who was in the company of his friends, is said to have fallen off his chair and died a few minutes to 10pm. Attempts by the middle-aged man’s friends to take him to hospital were futile as he died before reaching a nearby health facility.
Mbilini Sub-Location Assistant Chief Anthony Muasa told K24 Digital that the man had not eaten anything before taking to the bottle.
“Maybe the alcohol concentration in his body led to his collapsing and eventual death,” said Muasa.
The body of the reveller was taken to Machakos Level 5 Hospital morgue.
Police say a postmortem will be conducted on the deceased to ascertain his cause of death.
