Russians: Lay Off the Sauce!!!

In my mom's hometown of Minsk (Belarus,) a massive statue of Soviet Founder (and man who shares first name with my dad,) Vladimir Lenin collapsed on a kid who was hanging from it. Killing him instantly, the 21-year-old dude was wasted when he climbed onto the 16-foot-high monument and hung from its arm. The statue broke into pieces, not unlike the Soviet Union, and the kid was crushed.
