A Watsonia man’s hangover has been dangerously exacerbated by the seemingly simple task of deconstructing his infant child’s portacot. When Kenneth McLindon woke this morning it was clear that a heavy weekend of drinking had caught up with him, as his mouth was terribly dry and his head was throbbing.

Later in the morning, McLindon and his family started the process of packing up after spending the weekend at the holiday house of their friends. When the task of collapsing the portacot inevitably fell at the feet of Kenneth he almost reached breaking point.

Speaking to The Watsonia Bugle about his ordeal, Kenneth said, “It gets me every bloody time mate. Me head drops below the heart, the blood rushes to the head, I get all dizzy, and then some part of the portacot itself gets bloody stuck and I’m done for. The struggle becomes very real.”
