Binge drinking-induced blackouts can often bring about excruciating embarrassment—but at least that's better than the very real dangers that can also accompany them. Fortunately for one 23-year-old New Zealand woman partying it up in Hong Kong, it was more the former than the latter. Having gone out drinking, the vacationing cosmetic saleswoman woke up from a stupor at 3 am, sprawled out on the street and horrified that she had no recollection of how she got there. Worse, she found that she was suffering from extreme rectal pain, together with bleeding. With no idea why this was, she concluded the worst: she had been raped. Now distraught as well as hung-over, the woman got some hotel staff to call the emergency services, reported the attack to the police, and was whisked away in an ambulance for forensic examination. Law enforcement meanwhile launched into a hunt for a rapist. The red-alert didn't last long, however. Hospital examination revealed the real cause of the woman's pain and bleeding: a horrible-sounding crop of ulcerated hemorrhoids. Cops filed the case as a "mistaken" accusation. The unfortunate Kiwi's feelings about the episode—and her drinking habits—may take longer to process.
