Sup Travellers?! A man from Romania seemed to have bitten off a little more than he can chew because according to reports from Opinia, he choked to death at a Sausage eating contest. The 60-year-old man, whose name was not released, was participating in "Fomilă Plescoi," an eating contest at the 6th Plescoi Sausage Festival on Oct. 5, Opinia reported. The name "Fomila" comes from a fairytale character in Romania known for always being hungry.


During the contest, the unnamed man passed out after choking on a couple sausages. EMT's tried to resuscitate the man but their attempts were futile because soon after, he was pronounced dead. Medics say he could have been saved if someone had performed the Heimlich maneuver when he began choking. As you can see in the video, the Heimlich maneuver was only performed after the man was already dead [Which makes the maneuver useless]. If you watch the video you could see that the people around him had no idea what they were doing. They were obviously not qualified. There is a video below of the whole incident which occurred in the fourth minute but it is very graphic in nature and viewer discretion is advised. You've been warned. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
