Beer Drinker Passes On

In Spain's Murcia region, Joaquín Alcaraz
Gracia had just finished 6 liters ( a gallon and a
half) of beer in twenty minutes, winning the
trophy at a festival. When Gracia raised the
trophy he began to vomit continuously for
several minutes before apparently falling asleep.

He wasn't asleep. He was in cardiac arrest.
When the locals discovered he wasn't well, he
was rushed to the emergency room, where he
soon died.The festival was cancelled and
replaced with three days of official mourning.
His fellow contestants blamed Garcia's
excessive eating habits  - he was obese - and his
smoking.  They did not blame his drinking.
