The 25-year-old actor was in Darwin for a couple of nightclub appearances and a close encounter with a croc named Chopper. He is the son of rugby league legend Wally Lewis, a former Home and Away actor, and a budding Aussie talent who will soon be off to the US again after finishing a movie that also starred Will Smith. Chopper who lives in Crocosaurus Cove is 790kg and 5.5m long. Lewis, a Queenslander, is 89kg and about 182cm. I feel like that goat in Jurassic Park when they fed it to the T-Rex, he shouted from his container. He spent a bit of time splashing Chopper in the eye, through a tiny gap, before being pulled out. There was that one point we were eye to eye 5-10cm away from each other. Theyre such beautiful creatures, Lewis said. Lewis also appeared at The Vics pyjama party, and then, last night, was set to do HP Underground for a snow party. One thing I really wanted to say: Darwin people are just awesome, he said. Schoolie blinded by grog By BRIANA DOMJEN A TEENAGE girl has been blinded after drinking a tainted cocktail while on a schoolies trip to Bali. The 18-year-old is believed the worst affected of a number of people who fell seriously ill after drinking cocktails spiked with methanol. The girl, from Sydneys northern suburbs, went to the emergency department of Royal North Shore Hospital after returning from overseas last week. A hospital spokeswoman confirmed the schoolie had been admitted, saying: There was a female patient that apparently had received treatment in Bali and had then presented to Royal North Shore at the beginning of this week. The hospital would not say what symp toms the teenager had but added she had been discharged and was recovering at home last night. Methanol poisoning can cause vomiting, headaches and gastric pain, coma, and liver failure. In extreme cases, it can lead to death. Blindness also is common it can last a few hours or lead to permanent damage. Foreign Minister Bob Carr said several other cases had been reported by travellers. There have been other local reports of drink spiking cases this year, he said. But not every case is brought to the attention of our consular staff. Methanol is extremely toxic and poisoning can cause serious injury and blindness. Methanol is sometimes used to make cheap drinks more alcoholic.
