A college student was reported dead after choking on choco pie while participating in a fast eating dare at a University welcoming party.

On March 17, according to a University hospital in South Jeolla Province, a senior female college student in the nursing program identified simply as 'A' was found unconscious in a hotel restroom located in Naju, South Jeolla Province on March 16 at 8:13 pm.

Upon her discovery, she was rushed to the nearest university hospital but was pronounced dead within an hour.

'A' attended a student welcoming party and it also happened to be her birthday. A pile of choco pie was used as her birthday cake and an acquaintance suggested that she should eat all the choco pie as fast as she can.

After hurriedly eating the chocolate and marshmallow covered snacks, 'A' hurriedly left the room saying she had to use the restroom.  When she didn't return for a while, someone decided to check on her where she was found to be unconscious.

A representative of the university hospital claimed 'A' was unable to breathe after eating the choco pies in a rush causing a blockage in her respiratory tract.

They added, "We will know the exact cause of death once performing an autopsy. However, it looks like the choco pie is related to 'A's death."

In addition to investigating 'A's death, police personnel stated they will be looking into the university's student management.

I've heard a lot of people get embarrassed when they start coughing (because the food gets stuck in their throat) while eating, so they go to the nearest bathroom to be alone. NEVER DO THIS. Sometimes you're not able to get the food out by yourself, which can lead to situations like these. RIP.

She died on the day she was born. I don't know whether to rip her or happy birthday. Both I guess.

That student is a nursing student in senior year. Chance is, her friends are also nursing students in their senior year (since age hierarchy is a thing in Korea after all). Yet no one finds it weird that none of these people did Heimlich maneuver or CPR? What have these people learned in the nursing program for the past couple of years?!

it seems she went to the bathroom when she was ok i feel like durring her short walk to the bathroom thats when she discovered the choco pie was to thick and dry and she didnt have enough moisture to fully undensify it. that is when she panicked and choked since it wasnt a while since they discovered her . by then she was already unconsious thats why u never rush to eat even as a joke or a play thing you dont mess with food cus not everyone knows how to preform the heimlich maneuver

Well if you're about to graduate as a nurse in a couple of months you better know how to do heimlich! Lol but yes, people shouldn't play around with food, especially testing their body with it.
