As word of the death of West Palm Beach resident Ed Archbold after a cockroach-eating contest spread around the world this week, footage of Friday’s competition at the Ben Siegel Reptiles store in Deerfield Beach popped up on line.
The video below, which has not been seen on local media, shows the 32-year-old father obviously in distress, struggling to breathe while trying to digest the mouthfuls of bugs he just ate.
WARNING: THE FOOTAGE BELOW IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC! But if it deters anyone else from doing the same thing, then it’s worth watching.
