Man dies after drinking a whole bottle of Jaegermeister in drinking competition

A South African man died after drinking a whole bottle of Jaegermeister in two minutes in a bid to win R200.

The incident allegedly happened on Sunday, just minutes before midnight.

Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said police in Waterval, outside Louis Trichardt, had opened an inquest case.

“It follows an incident of apparent misuse of alcohol that took place at one of the local liquor outlets at Mashamba Village, where the patrons allegedly participated in what they called a ‘drinking competition’, in which the winner could consume the entire bottle of Jagermeister, within a specified time, would get R200 cash,” Mojapelo said.

After falling to the ground, the man, aged between 25 and 30, was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

In a video, which has gone viral on social media, the man is seen downing a bottle of Jagermeister, without pausing, as people around him clap and cheer.

He drank the whole bottle, without a single break, in under two minutes before passing out.

The incident happened at a tavern, called the Blue Corner Car Wash & Liquor Restaurant, in Ha-Mashamba Village, near Elim, in Limpopo.

Comment from the owner of the tavern will be added when received.
