GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – A 32-year-old man died in Florida after consuming a large but uncounted quantity of roaches and worms, a feat that won him a python worth $850, at a pet store. The man collapsed outside the store after the contest, shortly after he managed to phone an ambulance, reports CNN. An autopsy is being carried out to determine the cause of death, but media web sites in the US covering the accident are speculating whether an allergic reaction or bacteria may have been the cause (link to Miami Herald).
