West Palm Beach man dies after eating dozens of roaches

More proof that as a society we've finally hit rock bottom.

A 32-year-old West Palm Beach man died over the weekend after eating a dozen cockroaches and worms during a roach-eating contest in Deerfield Beach according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The competition was organized by the Ben Siegel Reptiles store, and the winner was to get a python.

Now, Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating the death.

The victim was identified as Edward Archbold.

Minutes after Friday night’s contest, according to a BSO spokeswoman, Archbold started feeling ill. He started regurgitating and later collapsed shortly after exiting the store.
