A man in Florida died after eating dozens of cockroaches and worms during a contest to win a pet python.
Edward Archbold, 32, was one of several participants in an insect-eating contest Friday sponsored by the Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach, Florida, 65 km north of Miami, according to local police.
Archbold began vomiting shortly after his exploits won him the python. He collapsed outside the store, police in Broward County said in a statement. Emergency responders took Archbold to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
