A man has tragically lost his life after he drank an entire bottle of spirit in 2 minutes in a bid to win 200 Rands (N5k) as part of a challenge.
The incident happened at Mashamba village in Limpopo, South Africa, where the deceased participated in a liquor store challenge and drank a bottle of spirit which contains 35% alcohol.
The man whose name remains unknown reportedly collapsed after gulping down the last drop. He was subsequently rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Limpopo police spokesperson, Brig. Motlafela Mojapelo confirmed the development in a statement.
The PRO said: ”Police in Waterval outside Louis Trichardt have opened a case of inquest following an incident of apparent misuse of alcohol that took place at one of the local liquor outlets at Mashumba Village where the patrons allegedly participated in what they called a ‘drinking competition.
‘The winner who could consume the entire bottle of Jägermeister within a specified time, would get R200 cash.
One of them immediately collapsed thereafter and was taken to the local clinic where he was certified dead.”
