A man lost his life after winning a bet of drinking an entire bottle of alcohol in one shot.

23-year-old Kelvin Rafael Mejia of the Dominican Republic, was seen on video chugging down an entire bottle of tequila.

He won $630 on the bet at a nightclub in the city of La Romana.

The shocking video of the incident, which was uploaded to the Internet, shows Mejia downing the alcohol and collecting the prize money before collapsing on the ground.

Two men are seen taking him off the stage and carrying him to a medical team.

Mejia, who recently became a father, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The nightclub owners said that they did not hold the alcohol drinking competition and that it was a bet between some friends and other patrons.

The nightclub sometimes holds dance or costume contests, and they give the winner free drinks.
