Man Dies In Cake-Eating Contest – Fairy Cakes Suspected


The SuspectPolice are investigating whether a man choked to death while taking part in a competition with friends to see how many fairy cakes they could eat at once.

The story was broken by the BBC and it is REAL.

According the the BBC story:  “The man, thought to be from Birmingham, collapsed at a Swansea nightclub during the event at the end of a party to raise funds for an art exhibition.”

Further to the story:  “An inquest is to be held on a man who died during a contest to see who could eat the most fairy cakes.”

The man was taken to hospital following the incident just after 2:00 am but was pronounced dead a short time later.  Detectives, who say the death is not suspicious, are waiting for a post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death.  He had reportedly been attending a party to raise funds for an exhibition by a local artist.

In a statement, club owners Amanda Davey and Paul Dyke said: “We are all devastated by this tragic accident.

“We are all in shock.”

“It was a tragic accident and very sad and should serve as a cautionary tale.”

“Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family.”

A South Wales Police spokesman said: “There are no suspicious circumstances and a file is being prepared for the coroner.”
