    Drunk Michal Kawolski was rescued by astonished coastguards after floating out to sea on a sheet of ice while still clasping a bottle of vodka.


    The 23-year-old was spotted by coastguards as he floated past them off the coast of Gdansk, Poland.

    Mr Kawolski had been drinking with friends when, naturally, he decided it would be a good idea to test the strength of the ice that was forming on the shoreline of the Baltic Sea.

    One of Mr Kawolski's drinking pals said: 'We dared him to do it and it seemed like a good idea.

    'There was a loud crack and then he started to float away.

    'We thought it was funny at first but then he started to scream for help.'

    The powerful currents pulled him about a kilometre out to sea.

    A rather shaken Mr Kawolski was taken to hospital where he stayed overnight to be treated for hypothermia.

    Following the ordeal Mr Kawolski said: 'Well, I won't be doing that again.'
