His Facebook profile said ‘it is better to die from vodka than from boredom’.

A drinking competition went tragically wrong for 23-year-old Humberto Moura Fonseca when he died after downing 25 shots of vodka in less than 60 seconds.

The University of Julio de Mesquita student was taking part in a drinking game in Bauru, southwestern Brazil, at the time of his death.

‘Humberto and the others were really up for it,’ said his friend Rodrigo Pancetti, also 23.

‘On his Facebook there’s a quote, a motto, from the Russian poet Vladimir Maiakovski which says “It is better to die from vodka than from boredom”.

‘I never thought that would become reality. But once he had finished, he said he felt ill and suddenly collapsed.’

Medical crews rushed Fonesca and several other students to the hospital, but he died on the way, with doctors later confirming they had suffered alcohol poisoning.

Three other people were still in intensive care.

Now police say they are looking to charge the organisers, who are thought to be two fourth year students, with homicide.

A spokesman for the university said: ‘We very much regret the death of this young man and our condolences go out to his family and friends.’
