A 41-year-old man died after participating in a taco eating contest at a Fresno Grizzlies game Tuesday night, officials said.

The Fresno County Coroner's Office told the Fresno Bee that Dana Hutchings was rushed from the Chukchansi Park to a nearby hospital but died on arrival.

The Grizzlies the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals confirmed Tuesday night the fan left the stadium in an ambulance, but did not have any comment on Wednesday.

Fans told the Bee the man collapsed to the ground in the middle of the contest, and EMTs attempted CPR and the Heimlich maneuver before the ambulance arrived. It is unclear how many tacos he had eaten and if he had family or friends present.

The coroner's office did not give an official cause of death, and has not responded to a request for comment from SFGate.
