The Fresno Grizzlies are the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals and play in the Pacific Coast League. I have a feeling they won't be having taco eating contests anymore.

Fresno man dies after competing in taco eating contest at Grizzlies baseball game

“he was eating so fast compared to the other two (contestants).”
“It was like he’d never eaten before. He was just shoving the tacos down his mouth without chewing.”
About seven minutes into the contest, Hutchings abruptly collapsed and hit his face on a table as he went down to the ground, Boylan said.


This is either the best way to go, or the worst. I can't decide.

I was watching something a while back talking about elevator accidents. More than you would care to think about. Some are defective elevators breaking at inopportune times. Others are human error. One lady got sliced in half as the elevator went up several floors while door was open (I think something similar happened here). In that case they had upgraded the elevator software and the technician left the elevator computer in "testing mode" (this was required to upgrade the software) when it was put back into service. This turned off the protocols that prevented the cars from moving while the doors are open. After watching this special I am always quick to enter or exit an elevator. Also take the stairs down where possible.

The other people on the elevator with the lady also did not particularly enjoy the experience.

The New York Times headline about the death of that 30-year-old gives an interesting little detail that is not in the CNN story. Attorneys, start your lawsuits!
