FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- The son of a California man who choked to death during an amateur taco eating contest at a minor league baseball game is suing the event's organizers for negligence.

The Fresno Bee reports the lawsuit filed Monday alleges Dana Hutchings was not made aware of the risks and danger involved in an eating competition.

The 41-year-old died after choking on tacos while competing in the contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game in 2019.

The suit names Fresno Sports and Events, the owner of the Grizzlies.

Grizzlies President Derek Frank declined to comment.
Organizers should counter-sue the son for not warning father, or other competitors, of the risks.
Personal responsibility....there is none.
If you don't want the cops to beat you, don't fight the cops

If you don't want to die skydiving, don't jump out of the airplane

If you don't want to choke while inhaling tacos like a fat fuck, don't inhale tacos like a fat fuck.
Unless it's when that one sharp piece you didn't chew well enough gets lodged in your throat. That shit hurts

Yup happened to me in 6gr camp. I was choking on a hard shell taco, nobody noticed until I got up to get some water. I got in trouble for standing without permission. :homer::homer:
