Miami, Florida (PRWEB) July 26, 2013
According to Fox News on 7/24 in their article, Drunken Canadian swims across Detroit River, prompts international rescue, a drunk Canadian man swam across the Detroit River to the United States, which led to an international rescue operation. John Morillo, 47, of Windsor, Ontario, told The Windsor Star, "The thing is, I've been telling people I'm going to swim across the river for years and they're like 'yah, yah, blah, blah, you can't make it.' So, I don't know, last night I just decided it was the time to go."
Fortunately, no one was injured, but alcohol abuse can cause serious health issues up to and including death for drinkers. Harbor Village, located in sunny South Florida, provides private alcohol rehab for clients. In an upscale, 24/7 state-of-the art environment, clients are greeted by luxury accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of scenic outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the individualized care by the attentive staff.
According to the Fox News story, Drunken Canadian swims across Detroit River, prompts international rescue, Morillo regretted causing the international incident, which included a response by U.S. and Canadian authorities who were on the scene in the form of three boats and a helicopter. He was arrested for public intoxication but was later released from jail.
Eventually, Morillo made it across the river's rough waters to Detroit, where he pulled himself out near downtown's Renaissance Center. You would think he would have taken a boat back across to Windsor, Ontario, but instead he decided to swim back when he was spotted by the U.S. Coast Guard.
The night of swimming will prove to be expensive for Morillo who will receive a fine of $5,000 to $25,000.
“In addition to great health risks, alcohol abuse could cost you your job, family and self worth. Take action by checking into a detox center such as Harbor Village that offers safe, effective treatment,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
