Aug. 15-- LOS ANGELES-The death of a man who officials suspect choked while participating in an amateur taco-eating contest at a minor league baseball game in Fresno this week has prompted the team to cancel a championship eating contest at the stadium.

Dana Hutchings, 41, of Fresno was devouring tacos as part of the amateur contest at the Fresno Grizzlies game against the Memphis Redbirds at Chukchansi Park on Tuesday when he started to choke, Fresno County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tony Botti said.

Mathew Boylan, who watched Tuesday's contest, told the Fresno Bee he noticed Hutchings because he was eating much faster than the other two contestants. Hutchings appeared to be swallowing the tacos without chewing and collapsed about seven minutes into the contest, Boylan said.

Just to be clear, we're talking a woman's taco, right?  :unsure:

A spokesman for Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said: ‘Hutchings arrived to the emergency room at 7.57 pm. ‘Medical staff began pulling out food to clear his airway, however, at 8:24 pm he passed away. ‘We do not have a cause of death at this point and it could take some time to determine.’

Uhhh, maybe he choked on tacos?

My sons entered an ice cream eating contest this weekend.  When they saw all the fatties they were going up against they decided to take their time and just enjoy their ice cream without all the mess and brain freeze.  Eating competitions are dumb.

Surprising this doesn't happen more often.   Some woman died a few years back from a water drinking contest.
