Beer king dead after downing six litres
A BOOZER died just moments after lifting the trophy he’d won in a beer-drinking contest.
Spectators cheered as Joaquín Alcaraz Gracia, 45, knocked back six litres of lager in record time.
But their awe turned to horror as he lifted the coveted cup and started to vomit “without stopping”.
Minutes later he passed out and never woke up.
Antonio Alcaraz said that Gracia “seemed fine” right up until the award ceremony in Murcia, Spain, after competitors tried to down the most litres of beer in 20 minutes.
Witness Santiago García, one of the emergency officials, later described Gracia as ‘obese’.
He added: “It seems Joaquín’s body said ‘enough is enough’.
“He started to vomit in his chair. I was one of the people who held him upright.”
Municipality vice president Pedro Rodríguez said: “He vomited a lot but I sat with him for 10 minutes, and he was sleeping and snoring.”
He wasn’t sleeping but suffering from a massive heart attack.
Gracia was rushed to hospital but medics were unable to revive him. I’VE been eating a lot of salad over the past few weeks – while the weather has been so warm.
Which is great for my glamour model figure, but I am craving a full english breakfast or a proper Sunday lunch now. My mum makes the best roast dinners – with all the trimmings and homemade apple pie for afters.
But she says she ‘can’t be arsed’ slaving over a hot oven in this heat.
Roll on the winter, I say!
