WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) -- The possibility of alcohol poisoning is being investigated in the death of a 19-year-old West Valley City man.

The man reportedly had been at a friend's house late Friday and early Saturday playing a drinking game, during which he was said to have consumed about a quart of vodka.

His friends took him to his home, where he lived with his parents, police Sgt. Dalan Taylor said. He was unconscious when he arrived home.

About 11 a.m. Saturday, a parent went into his bedroom to check

on him and found him dead, Taylor said. An autopsy is planned.
