According to Vanguard, it took some good-spirited Nigerians over an hour to resuscitate the girl identified as Mercy from Ini in Akwa Ibom State.
The girl was said to have dropped the bucket containing the snacks she was selling, fell by the roadside opposite the stadium and became unconscious. This prompted good Samaritans to rush to her aid, thinking she was sick and started to fan and pour cold water on her.
This eventually brought her back to consciousness. However, when she was given water and food, she suddenly began to vomit white substances mixed with the rice. The vomit had an acrid alcohol stench.
When asked what was wrong with her, she said in a barely audible voice that she bought and drank six sachets of an alcoholic beverage.
After taking some water, she began to gesture for more of the said beverage drink to be given to her.
This angered some of the people who bought her food and water.
“If I knew it was alcohol that made her unconscious, I would not have wasted my money which I would have used for better things,” one of them said.
When no alcohol was given to her, she went into a deep sleep and the crowd thinned out. After about an hour, she woke up, picked her bucket of snacks and went her way.
