An effort to win a £10 bet money in the amount of 5000 Nigerian Naira, lead to the death of a South African man who consumed an entire bottle of liquor in only two minutes.
According to the report by six9ja news, the victim (name undisclosed) had gone to the shop in the Limpopo settlement of Mashamba to participate in the challenge but finally passed away after nearly completing the 35 percent bottle of alcohol.
The guy, who was between the ages of 25 and 30, reportedly fell to the ground before being taken immediately to a hospital, where he was later declared dead.
According to more recent sources, an inquiry has been initiated into his death.
Brig. Motlafela Mojapelo, a representative for the Limpopo police, was cited by saying:
“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.”
