    'Pub with no beer' steak ends in choking death

    A man has died two days after choking on a piece of steak at one of Queensland's most famous watering holes, the "pub with no beer".

    The 44-year-old man was eating alone on Friday night at the Lees Hotel, famous for standing in place of the Day Dawn Hotel, birthplace of the Slim Dusty classic.

    A police spokesman said the man began choking and fellow punters at the Ingham pub, between Townsville and Cairns, rushed to provide first aid.

    Paramedics eventually managed to dislodge the steak but the man from Cardwell, about 40 minutes north, had been without oxygen for 45 minutes.

    He was rushed to the Ingham Hospital, before being transferred to Townsville.

    The spokesman said his family made the decision to switch off the man's life support on Sunday afternoon. His organs were donated to give life to others.

    Slim Dusty's internationally renowned A Pub With No Beeroriginated in Ingham in 1943, when Irish farmer Dan Sheahan arrived at the Day Dawn Hotel only to be told American soldiers had drunk the place dry.

    Placating his thirst with a glass of wine, he penned A Pub Without Beer.

    Country singer Gordon Parsons adapted the tune, basing it on hisown local in New South Sales, and it became a hit for Dusty in 1957.
