Video: Man Dies In Drinking Competition At Local Tavern
Tragedy struck at the Blue Corner Car Wash & Liquor Restaurant in Ha-Mashamba Village near Elim in Limpopo when a man took a bet to drink a whole bottle of Jagermeister for R200.
He drank the entire bottle but collapsed soon after, never to get the R200 for which he had taken a considerable risk.
Developed in 1934 by 1934 by Wilhelm and Curt Mast, Jägermeister is a German digestif made with 60 herbs and spices. It has a high volume alcohol content.
According to police, an investigation into the incident is ongoing. Giving details on what actually happened that Sunday, July 10, 2022, police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo noted that patrons at the local tavern had gotten into a drinking competition.
