A baby being carried by an extremely drunk American tourist at Oktoberfest in Munich has had to be taken into care.

The man, from Texas, was so drunk that he was falling over and vomiting while sitting across an exit - despite having a baby attached to his front, reported the Daily Mail.

A passer-by then noticed and took the baby off the man before police arrived.

But according to The Local, the man was in such a state of intoxication that he could not even answer their questions.

As a consequence, the 28-year-old was taken to hospital and the baby taken to a police station.

A child welfare officer then decided to take the child into care.

Oktoberfest is the biggest beer festival in the world and attracts millions of visitors every year.

Six million visitors are expected this year.
