Taco eating contestant Dana Hutchings eats his last taco
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Family members of the man who choked and died during a taco eating competition Tuesday say they are still stunned by the loss.

Mecca Hutchings says her brother, Dana Andrew Hutchings, told her he was going to take part in the competition hours before he died.

"Who would think something like this would happen?" she said Wednesday.

Mecca said it still doesn't seem real. She and her mother Dora are left with only these memories of Dana.

"He told us he was going to a taco eating contest, but we didn't think something like this would happen," Mecca said.

Fresno County sheriff's authorities say Hutchings was taking part in an eating competition at Chukchansi Park when he started choking.
