By Franklin Abuyeka | March 6th 2017 at 12:54:10 GMT +0300

A 23-year old man died after chugging a bottle of tequila during a drinking competition at a Dominican nightclub.

The tragic incident happened last week in the city La Romana, in eastern Dominican Republic, and it was all captured on video by a mobile phone camera. 

The young man, identified as Kelvin Rafael Mejía, is first seen on his feet drinking the tequila straight from a bottle. When he is done he is handed the cash prize, then a few seconds later he can barely stand and needs to be assisted by two men on each side.

Shortly after he collapses and never regains consciousness.

He was then taken to a nearby clinic where he was declared dead.

According to eye witnesses, the events unfolded after Mejia approached a table where a group of patrons were betting money on how much tequila they could drink in a single gulp. He reportedly asked to join in.

According to family, the man was a regular patron and had recently become a father.
