    [h=1]Autopsy reveals Florida man choked to death after roach eating contest[/h]
    Published November 26, 2012
    | Associated Press




    MIAMI – An autopsy has concluded that a Florida man choked to death after downing dozens of live roaches during a contest earlier this year.
    The report released Monday says 32-year-old Edward Archbold of West Palm Beach died as a result of "asphyxia due to choking and aspiration of gastric contents."
    Lab tests for drugs came back negative. The death has been ruled an accident.
    Archbold died after downing the bugs as well as worms in October for the contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach, about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python. :facepalm:


    Archbold became ill shortly after and collapsed in front of the store. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
    Authorities said none of the other contestants became ill.

    As if anyone there would eat roaches. No, you only find white trash peeps eating that crap for silly items.

    We need more contests like this one to clean up the gene pool.

    Something similar happened a month ago. It was another roach eating contest in Florida and the price was also a snake. The guy died from an infection or some shit.
