Man Chugs Bottle of Tequila, Wins $630, Dies Minutes Later
In today’s edition of “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong” we’d like to introduce you to 23-year-old Kelvin Rafael Mejía who not only drank others under the table, but also himself into an early grave.
According to the New York Daily News, Meja, who also sadly just became a father, decided to take someone up on their bet and drink an entire bottle of Tequila. Video footage shows Meija downing the Tequila to the sound of cheers and claps. After accepting his cash prize of $630 Meija began to look disoriented before he fell to the floor and died.
The sad incident took place in the Dominican Republic at a local club in which Maija frequently visited. According to the medical examiner, Rafael died from alcohol poisoning.
