TAIPEI (Reuters) - A Taiwanese groom died on his wedding day after having too much wine and beer to drink, police and local media said Monday.

The man, 35, an insurance company worker surnamed Wu passed out at home after drinking too much Saturday at a high-end restaurant in Taipei among more than 100 wedding guests, the Liberty Times reported.

It was not known if he had health complications.

“Everyone was having a great time,” said restaurant party organizer Linda Chien. “We don’t know what happened after that.”

Wu was hospitalized after his face turned black, the paper said. A hospital spokeswoman said he died despite treatment.
