6 liters in 20 minutes? Should at least give the contestants 30 minutes.

Slightly more than 6 quarts.

About 17 12-ounce beers in 20 minutes? Uh, yeah...I can see how someone could die from that.

Consider that, on average, a 12 oz beer = 1 shot of 80 proof liquor, that's a lot of alcohol. But 20 minutes isn't long enough for the body to process that much, I doubt it was alcohol poisoning.  I forget how much water in a short period is fatal.

A lazy google says 1.5 gallons of water in an hour should do the trick.

Possible. Water poisoning is caused by loss of electrolytes, doubtful that could happen in 20 minutes.

Yeah it wasn't the ingestion that killed him, that's WAY to short of time.  I'm guessing he had an enlarged heart and the excess pressure from the amount of puking set off a heart attack.

An American walks into an Irish pub and says, "I'll give anyone $100 if they can drink ten Guinness's in ten minutes."
Most people just ignore the absurd bet and go back to their conversations, but one guy jumps up and runs out of the pub. A little while later that guy comes back and asks the American, "Is that bet still on?"
"Sure."
So the bartender lines ten Guinness's up on the bar the Irishman drinks them all in less than ten minutes.
As the American hands over the money he asks, "Why did you jump up and leave?"
The Irishman answers, "I ran out to the pub around the corner to see if I could do it."

Boerhaave Syndrome

If he dumped 6 liters of beer into his abdominal cavity that would completely screw up his blood fluid and electrolytes because it would get absorbed that fast across the entirety of peritoneum not to mention the much faster absorption of the alcohol.  Poor bastard.

Farking Darwin award right here. And yes, he died from the alcohol. Of course the mayor wouldnt admit it since it would mean he would have some responsibility for his death.

Combination of depressed system from the alcohol, excess fluid and then the excess vomiting on an already stressed and weak heart.

Id' buy that bet

Before I answer: Have you ever gone to Walmart and seen an immensely fat woman wearing a tube-top and hotpants when she has no business wearing anything like that in front of other humans with the ability to see?

Yeah, their husbands are the guys you're asking about.

Now you understand why.

No one has mentioned the likely culprit for this man's demise. Bad Spanish beer. All the local beer I drank in Rota was crap. Unfortunately, it was the only thing available to was down the jámon.

YES. We play every night. Jeopardy with beer rules. You get an answer wrong you drink. you get an answer right before your opponent they drink. daily doubles a re six sided dice roll and you exclusive question.

Drinking is fun. Punishing your opponents is even better.

Yeah, I honestly don't know how that guy's not dead. Forget all the weird crap he ingests, that slamming-a-bottle-of-liquor shtick he's got has to be dangerous.

Six farking litres of beer this guy drank? Got-DAMN! I seriously doubt I could put away that much water, and I know people have died from drinking water volumes around that. What the fark?

FTFA: "He vomited a lot but I sat with him for ten minutes, and he was sleeping and snoring away," municipality vice president Pedro Rodríguez told Hoy newspaper.

Looking and sounding like you're snoring is a common symptom of fatal levels of overhydration. That was probably at least part of how he died.

/not so csb

hard to believe its been over ten years now but a friend of mine in the Navy came home on leave, several of his Navy buddies came along with him. My friend had a somewhat unique ability to down a pitcher of beer in under 10 seconds. After a full night of drinking everyone starting pooling money together to have my friend down a pitcher of beer, he did it, and then did another for good measure. Just five minutes later he was sitting on on a bar stool counting the money he had won, trying to light a cigarette when his own lights just went out. He fell over sideways, off the barstool, hitting the ground face first, unconscious. He threw up for hours afterwards. guess he was pretty close to death. He was never quite right after that either. Was kicked out of the navy about a year later for another alcohol related incident. Never came back home. I haven't heard from him since.

Don't worry. His twin brother, Gil, has elected to replace him. And in order to get all that uncomfortable, getting to know you stuff out of the way, Gil asks that you call him, "Landfill," too.

I'd have to agree.  17 bottles worth of beer is a lot but the amount of alcohol in that much is unlikely to be lethal, especially since the full amount wasn't even all in his stomach until the 20 minute mark.  Even then, only a portion of the alcohol would have been absorbed into his system in that short a time.

However, the physical stress of that much all at once, combined with violent vomiting and exacerbated by the fair amount of alcohol that did make it into his system in those 20 minutes definitely sound like three things that shouldn't be added together.
