Guy Goes To Pub With Mates, Wakes Up 1,675 Miles Away With No Memory
| Last updated
We've all been there: you wake up in a strange place, fully clothed, head absolutely banging, breath thick with the taste of beer, eyes like pinholes, a few bumps and bruises that weren't there the night before and zero memory.
Cast your mind back and focus on how you felt in that moment. Not the best, is it?
OK, now times that by 1,000 and you're still not even close to the level of headfuckery this Romanian bloke managed to reach after his latest trip to the boozer.
The last thing Mihai Danciu remembers is being in his local, chatting to his mates about finding a job and no doubt enjoying a nice refreshing pint or 10. Next thing he knows, it's a week later, he's on the ground with a black eye and everyone around him is talking a different language.
Absolute nightmare, but that's exactly what happened.
Somehow, Mr Danciu had gone from the pub in his hometown of Albesti, Romania, to lying face down in the courtyard of a Central London building, 1,675 miles away. Stranger still, he appeared to have been beaten and had no idea how he got there.
Still recovering from what it's probably fair to assume was one of the most cataclysmic hangovers of all time, the confused drinker was taken to Whipps Cross hospital, where a Romanian nurse spoke to him and confirmed that he was indeed in London.
Nurse Adina Costache then posted his story on a Facebook page for Romanians in the UK, hoping that someone could help shed some light on how Danciu had ended up so far from home.

She wrote: "He was found drunk and it looks like he had been beaten up, he was in a courtyard.
"He was brought to our hospital, but he told me he doesn't know anyone in London and he was amazed to find he was no longer in Romania.
"He has no idea how we got to London. If someone knows him and wants to send me a private message I can pass it on to him. He is admitted to the department where I work."
Local media in Romania have now taken it upon themselves to solve the mystery and have confirmed that he was last seen drinking with his friends a week earlier.
Neighbours said that Danciu had lived with his partner and their children in her grandparents' home at least until recently, but that he had disappeared a week ago.
One neighbour said: "He was a really nice guy, although of late he hasn't been himself because he drinks too much.
"The drink caused him memory loss in the past, so it's no wonder that he ended up like this."
For now, the events that led him to London are still unclear, but one things for sure, it's not going to be an easy one to explain to his girlfriend.
