Roaches Checked In, He Checked Out

Most horrible story of the year?  (AP)  An autopsy released Monday showed that a man who died after winning an insect-eating contest choked to death after downing dozens of live roaches. Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach was unable to breathe because his airway was obstructed, according to the report from the Broward County medical examiner’s office. Mr. Archbold died after eating the bugs as well as worms in the Oct. 6 contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach. About 30 people ate the insects, but the authorities said none of the other contestants became ill. The grand prize was a python.
