Whenever I hear about deadly alcohol poisoning, I always find it hard to believe a person could remain conscious long enough to reach those levels, regardless of tolerance. And they apparently didn't find any stimulants that could have kept her awake and drinking. It's fairly easy to get to blackout levels, but eventually, you're gonna pass out.

That means her blood was between 35-45% alcohol?    Man, that will shut down all your organs.

You are off by about 1000X...  Once you go over 0.5% you are dead.

4.5X the legal limit in GB (0.08%) would put her at around 0.36%, the chance of death starts at 0.3%.    A healthy person would probably survive .36 but not someone in her condition.
