Gambler guzzles paint after losing all

A man gulped down paint after losing money in gambling yesterday in the city's Baoshan District. He is still receiving treatment in hospital.

The 40-year-old man, whose name was not disclosed, was addicted to gambling, his neighbors said.

About 3:30pm yesterday, he suddenly held a pail of paint and began swallowing it in frenzy, a witness said.

He was quickly sent to a nearby hospital and doctors said the man had drunk about half a kilo of paint and they may have to conduct a surgery to remove paint attached to his stomach.
