Fresno Man Dies After Eating Too Many Tacos

A taco eating contest gone wrong took place in California on Tuesday.

Anything in excess can prove to be bad for you, and in this case even fatal. 

41-year-old Dana Hutchings was participating in a taco eating contest after Tuesday's Fresno Grizzlies-Memphis Redbirds game in California when he suddenly collapsed mid-bite according to the Fresno Sheriff's Department. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died a short time later.

An official cause of death is pending an autopsy, which is scheduled for Thursday. "We are not ruling a cause of death yet," a rep for the sheriff's department says. "But we have an idea."

Could it have been bad ingredients? An allergy? A pre-existing condition? 

Either way, you may want to slow down just a bit next time you're enjoying 'Taco Tuesday'.
