A Thai man taking part in a beer drinking competition died after downing a whole jug 

 

He staggered about, passed out and died, said a post on "Mor Lab Panda" on Facebook. 

 

It was last Saturday. The poster said that he used to take part in drinking competitions but had retired as it was just too dangerous. 

 

Sanook said that a while back there was a drinking contest in Isaan when a shop advertised free booze if you could polish off 25 shots in 25 seconds. 

 

Channel 3 reported that the death was a first case in Thailand at a drinking competition. Dr Niphon Chinanonwet called it "alcohol intoxication" - a medical term.

Channel 3 said that 20-50 mg in the blood made you happy. But 50+ started to get serious. 

 

Sanook said 400+ and you were likely to die. 

 

Relatives of the deceased were preparing a funeral at Wat Suan Rom Baramee in Phitsanulok in Thailand's north. They would not speak to reporters. 

 

An investigation is underway into drinking competitions.

Blimey, If one jug of beer killed him it must've been very strong stuff. I'm guessing it was liquor.

It''s not possible to die just from one jug, even it it's large, some 1.5 litre one. Unless he was an alcoholic and was on disulfiram, anti alcohol medicine. Or had some serious medical condition - heart attack, stroke, burst aorta.

Autopsy should be carried, not what his drunk mates said to the journalists.

If body is alkohol intoxicated it rejects more of it and have to puke.

A jug of beer will make me drunk, but able to walk

an autopsy would read DIED FROM NATURAL CAUSES usually the case here !!
