He was on a locked psychiatric ward...for good reason.

He couldn't leave. He could however walk the halls of the locked psych unit.

He was curious. He was always looking into things.

One day while walking the halls of the unit, he decided to try and open every door. He was able to open a utility closet door which was left unlocked.

He found some Drano; a drain cleaner.

He decided to do what most people would never do...

Have a drink. A big drink... of acidic drain cleaner.

Why would he do that?

Great question. That would explain why he was on the psychiatric ward.

He wound up needing emergency surgery because the Drano wound up giving him massive burns inside his entire digestive system.
