And Who By Pastry…: Man Dies During Doughnut Eating Contest

7

A 42-year-old Colorado man attempting to complete a doughnut-eating challenge died Sunday after choking on a giant pastry. Witnesses said Travis Malouff, of Denver, was participating in Voodoo Doughnut’s 80-second half-pound doughnut challenge before his death, KUSA-TV reported.

“It’s tragic,” Curtis Malouff, Travis’ father, told KUSA-TV. “It’s a loss of life that shouldn’t be.”

Witnesses told the news outlet that at people in the shop at the time tried to help Malouff when they realized he was choking, but nobody knew how to properly perform the Heimlich maneuver.

Paramedics arrived but were unable to revive Malouff, who died from asphyxia due to obstruction of the airway, the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner announced on Monday.

  1. The Family should know of no more tzarr. I will be done lkaf zecus and hope he was just getting rid of chomatz. Your reward is in shomyim.

  2. After how many comments will you change the title. Don’t include the most serious thing we say to some jokey article.

  3. Very important story, thanks for featuring it.

    Along with the death of a NJ young woman in a NYC hospital earlier this week, who died from a pancake eating contest in CT, these stories need to be publicized to show the dangers of such activities. They are not ‘fun and harmless’. They are dangerous!

    People should know that such activities are NOT KOSHER. No such activities should be allowed by us. Eating contests are סכנת נפשות.
