Case happened in the United States in August 2019 in California
A tragic death in 2019 has yielded a lawsuit in the USA this year. Marshall Hutchings wants to sue Fresno Sports and Events, the company that owns the Fresno Grizzlies baseball team, after his father’s death during a contest eating tacos that happened at Chukchansi Park and was organized by Fresno. According to him, the official did not inform his father, Dana, about the risks involved in eating a very high number of food in a short period of time. Dana, 41, died after choking on leftover “chewed and not chewed” taco, according to the TMZ website. Marshall said a group of people tried to revive his father with CPR and defibrillator, but Dana was presumed dead when he arrived at the hospital.
According to the son, the company needs to pay compensation to the family because it should not hold an event of this size for newbies, since most of these contests involve professionals and are organized in a serious way, with previous training and preparation. Marshall filed a wrongful death lawsuit and asked a judge to award compensation. The amounts requested by the Hutchings family were not revealed.
