Blog: Airport rules to die for - well, nearly.

An elderly man nearly died after downing a litre of vodka to sidestep new carry-on rules at a European airport last week.
According to police, the 64-year old man, who was returning from his holiday in Egypt, was changing planes at Nuremberg airport in Germany when he was informed by staff that he would not be able to take the alcohol on board with him unless he paid a fee.
Later, while being treated at a clinic, doctors diagnosed that the man, who could barely function, had suffered from potentially life-threatening alcohol poisoning.
