Humberto Moura Fonseca, age 23, drank 25 shots of vodka in less than a minute.  He and his friends, other students at the University of Julio de Mesquita, were involved in a drinking competition during the time of this tragic event. Soon after he finished the shots, he complained of feeling ill and collapsed to the floor. 

A medical crew was fast on the scene and rushed Fonseca and others to the hospital. Unfortunately,  he passed away during transport and doctors later confirmed the cause was alcohol posioning. 

The quote is from Russian poet Vladimir Maiakovski and was posted on Fonseca's facebook page. 

Police are investigating the situation and may charge those who organized the contest, thought to be other students at the university, with homicide.

Brandon Dillon (D-Grand Rapids) have written a proposal to amend the state Liquor Control Act to make sure that when a pint of beer is offered at a bar or restaurant, customers are getting an "honest pint."

The 40-year-old, named as Andreas O., left his silver VW Golf in a side-street, near a tram stop, before hurrying to get a tram to the Theresienwiese where the Oktoberfest is held.

But after a day of beer, roast ox and folk music, the factory worker realized he had forgotten the names of both the street and the tram stop – and had no idea where his vehicle could be.
