Student Forgotten In Cell Drinks Own Urine

A California university student mistakenly left handcuffed in a cell without food or water for five days has described how he survived by drinking his own urine.

Daniel Chong, 23, was left in the cell in San Diego after being arrested with eight other people on April 21 in a raid in which Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents seized guns, ammunition and drugs.

Without food, water or access to a toilet, Daniel Chong, 23, began hallucinating on the third day.

The University of California engineering student said he saw little Japanese-style cartoon characters that told him to dig into the walls to find water.

He said he tore apart the plastic lining on the walls.

"I ripped the walls and waited for the room to flood for some reason," he said, after he left the hospital.

"I can't explain my hallucinations too well because none of them make sense.

"I felt like I was completely losing my mind," adding that he lost 15llbs (7kgs) during the ordeal.

Four days later, agents opened the door by chance and found him covered in his own faeces, Mr Chong said.

He had become so desperately thirsty he drank his own urine, and doctors are concerned about possible kidney damage.

After being released from the cell, Mr Chong spent five days in hospital where he was treated for dehydration and kidney failure.

Mr Chong was never arrested, never charged and should have been released.

His lawyer Julia Yoo said after her client was cleared of any wrongdoing, DEA agents told him they would put him in a holding cell for just a minute before driving him home.

But Mr Chong remained in the a 5ft (1.52-metre)-by-10ft (3-metre) windowless cell with his wrists handcuffed behind his back.

He managed to wriggle his arms back to the front of his body during his captivity.

As the hours dragged into days, he said he kicked and screamed as loud as he could.

At one point, he ripped a piece of his jacket off with his teeth and shoved it under the door, hoping someone would spot it and free him.

Mr Chong also tried to take his own life by breaking the glass from his glasses and attempting to carve "Sorry mom," on his arm.

Nurses later found pieces of glass in his throat, leading him to believe he swallowed the shards.
