A 21 year old man from East Wall in Dublin’s inner city has been left in a critical condition after overdosing on a large quantity of pollen.
Earlier in the week, The Potato reported about a dangerous batch of Pollen that has hit the streets in recent days. Although a number of pollen production plants had been raided and their contents seized, it appears now that an amount of it has found it’s way to users across the country.
The man was rushed to St. James’s Hospital in the early hours of last night and is said to be in a critical, life threatening condition.
The victim was presented to medical staff at the hospital with puffy, itchy eyes, a runny nose and severe bouts of sneezing. His mental functioning has been significantly impaired and his physical condition is also deteriorating rapidly.
It is thought that the man ingested large amounts pollen at a house party last night and officials are now growing concerned that others at the party may be at a significant risk too.
They are appealing for any witnesses or people who were at the party to come forward and help with the investigation.
