    Also, if an allergic reaction caused her throat to close up, I can see her choking on food she was trying to swallow.
    This was the pancake choking one, I think the other guy listed this week was the donut guy. But the sentiment was right- if you are allergic to something, it's probably a good idea to ask about the ingredients.

    BRIDGEPORT ? The family of a Sacred Heart University student, who died last year during a competitive eating contest, is suing the school.

    On March 30, 2017, 20-year-old Caitlin Nelson died while taking part in an on-campus, school-sanctioned pancake eating contest for charity.


    ?Caitlin?s family is bringing this case to expose the dangers associated with amateur eating contests and to help prevent other families from having to endure this type of preventable tragedy,?

    Connecticut college settles suit over NJ student’s death in pancake-eating contest

    https://nypost.com/2020/11/14/connec...ating-contest/

    A Connecticut university has settled a lawsuit over the death of a 20-year-old student who choked during a campus pancake-eating contest.

    Sacred Heart University in Fairfield agreed to an undisclosed settlement with the mom of Caitlin Nelson, a Kappa Delta sorority member who died three days after the Greek life competition in March 2017, Fox News reported.

    The junior from Clark, N.J. was minutes into the charity fundraiser when she began to choke and collapsed, police said.

    “She starts to choke on a pancake and someone recognized it — one of the nursing students at the competition — and she caught her and brought her slowly to the ground,” Fairfield police Lt. Robert Kalamaras told The Post at the time.

    Nelson was rushed to a local hospital then transferred to New York’s Columbia University Medical Center, where she died days later.

    An autopsy determined that she died from asphyxia due to obstruction of the airway.

    The lawsuit blamed the university for approving the contest despite the potential dangers of quickly eating pancakes.

    School officials declined to comment on the settlement, while a lawyer for Nelson’s mother, Rosanne Nelson, confirmed the case was resolved.

    Personal Option Time: I hate eating contests. I think they're disgusting. People gorge themselves on food just to show that they can - why? We have all this food that people are eating for sport so why not feed actual hungry people with it?

    I mean no negativity toward the deceased here - she seems like she was a good kid. But these contests are dumb and wasteful.

    I have to agree. Never understood the thrill of entering these contests.

    I agree with this. I can't even watch people eat at a normal pace.

    I can't be the only one out here, I'm just not. Don't worry about it. Mind your fucking business.

    I totally agree with all of this. It's just so much excess and waste, and for what?
