A young man had looked too deep into the jug at the Oktoberfest. He landed at the first aid station, and crashed into the door.
Munich - The first beer corpse at this year's Oktoberfest was considered by many to be "record-breaking". Not because a thirsty person had already looked into the glass early in the morning, quite the opposite: It was not until around 15 p.m. that rescue workers recorded the first person who had gone to the head of alcohol consumption. So is this year's Oktoberfest a more peaceful and less escalative Oktoberfest?
According to the police, at least the start on the Theresienwiese was more leisurely than usual. And yet, as every year, many visitors to the Oktoberfest drink beyond their own limits – just like a young man who failed in his intoxication at the front door of the ambulance.

As reported by the Aicher ambulance, the incident occurred on Tuesday (19 September). As usual, the emergency services report in a press release that the young man had already attracted attention by his gait: "In the early evening hours, an approximately 25-year-old man made his way to the first aid station on foot and caught the eye of our team at the registration desk by the fact that he courageously aimed at the open entrance door with his eyes, but ultimately missed the target and staggered rudely against a pane of glass," according to the official statement.
Oktoberfest 2023 is in full swing. In order to ensure the greatest possible security, the police are once again choosing unusual means this year – and are met with great enthusiasm.

It goes on to say that the 25-year-old then wanted to make it credible that he had not yet drunk a sip of alcohol and then ordered his "first measure" from one of the paramedics. It goes on to say: "His clothing and his rather minimally developed fine motor skills made us doubt his story.

In the end, we convicted the "culprit" with the result of his breath alcohol test, which only succeeded on the third attempt and delivered a result of a whopping 2.59 per thousand. The young man slept off his intoxication for the next few hours, well cared for by our monitoring team, and was then released back into real life."
