It’s a common scene all over the Philippines: people gathered on the side street, sharing a bottle of alcohol and getting wasted. What’s not so ordinary, though, is someone getting his neck pierced with the very bottle the people were drinking.

Except that’s exactly what happened to 56-year-old Paracale, Camarines Norte resident Efren Labrador on Saturday all because he refused a shot.

According to Pilipino Star Ngayon, the man was just walking on the street with his two sisters when he happened to pass by a four-person drinking session. One of the men drinking, 34-year-old Darwin Casimiro, allegedly offered Labrador a shot of gin, which he declined.

Angered by this, Casimiro allegedly broke the gin bottle and pierced it through Labrador’s neck.

Yikes. And it happened during the day too.

The same report states that the incident happened at the 3:15pm.

Labrador was brought to the hospital and is currently being treated but is reportedly in critical condition.

Police have arrested Casimiro.
