VIDEO: Man Wins Eggnog Chugging Contest, Ends Up In ICU
According to BuzzFeed, Ryan Roche of Lehi, Utah couldn’t say no when his boss invited him to join an eggnog chugging contest.
He won, breaking the previous record of 22 seconds, by downing the entire carton in 12 seconds.
At the end, it looks like he’s about to hurl… But he said he was actually trying to catch his breath.
Within hours he was coughing and shaking uncontrollably and had to be rushed to the ER.
Doctors determined he had actually aspirated some of the eggnog and it ended up in his lungs. He got an infection that led to pneumonia and spent three days in the hospital.
He did get a $50 gift card to Ruth’s Chris for winning the contest, but he won’t be participating next year.
“It’s one of those things you have to laugh about it,” he said.
