Munich (dpa) - Production at a BMW plant in southern Germany ground to a halt after two workers passed out during their shift due to alcohol and drug consumption, the carmaker said Monday.

The two men collapsed towards the end of their shift at a plant in Munich earlier this month after drinking "copious amounts of alcohol" and smoking synthetic marijuana, a BMW spokesman said.

Other BMW employees called for an ambulance, which caused production to be suspended for a period of 40 minutes. The incident resulted in a financial loss in the five figures, the spokesman said.

He was confirming a report that appeared earlier on Monday in the German tabloid Bild, which said that one of the workers had been fired and the other moved to a different location.

The newspaper cited an anonymous source as saying BMW‘s loss due to the incident totalled 1 million euros (1.1 million dollars).
