Boozers kept Red Cross so busy at the Carnaval

THE Red Cross Mobile Carnaval Hospital has now closed, after treating 638 people during the Santa Cruz celebrations.

And, in keeping with last week’s findings, almost half of the cases were as a result of alcohol.

In all this year, 47% of the 570 adults and 68 under 18s were treated for booze-related related cases, although the number of youngsters needing help dropped from 80 in 2013.

Which, when put into perspective given the hundreds of thousands who attend each day's Carnaval events, that's pretty good behavour.
