Man Chokes To Death During Hot Dog Eating Contest
Fourth of July hot dog eating contest in South Dakota turned tragic when a contestant choked to death.
Custer County Sheriff Rick Wheeler tells the Rapid City Journal that 47-year-old Walter Eagle Tail, of Custer, died Thursday at a hospital after attempts to save him failed at the scene.
The Custer Chamber of Commerce sponsored the contest. The group canceled a pie-eating contest scheduled for Friday.
Chamber Executive Director Dave Ressler says the group is â€œat a loss for words.â€
Speed-eating competitions are popular over the Fourth of July weekend. Eight-time champion Joey â€œJawsâ€ Chestnut managed to eat 61 hot dogs in 10 minutes at the annual Coney Island contest on Friday, eight short of the record 69 he swallowed in the 2013 competition.
