The Florida man who collapsed and died last month after gobbling dozens of roaches and worms at an insect-eating contest choked to death, medical examiners found.
Edward Archbold, 32, gagged and heaved violently outside the Ben Siegel Reptile store in Deerfield Beach shortly after the Oct. 5 contest ended, as piles of bugs he had just eaten became lodged in his windpipe, the Broward County Medical Examiner said Monday.
