തീറ്റ മത്സരത്തില്പങ്കെടുത്ത പെണ്കുട്ടി ഭക്ഷണം തൊണ്ടയില്കുടുങ്ങി മരിച്ചു
A 20-year-old Connecticut college student whose father was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks has died after choking during a pancake-eating contest.Police say Caitlin Nelson died at a New York City hospital on Sunday, three days after participating in the contest at Sacred Heart University. She was from Clark, New Jersey, and was majoring in social work at the Catholic school in Fairfield. Caitlin Nelson, of Clark, New Jersey, who served as the vice president of community service at the school’s Kappa Delta sorority, was taking part in the Greek life eating contest last Thursday when she began choking after eating four or five pancakes, witnesses told police.
“She starts to choke on pancake on someone recognized it — one of the nursing students at the competition — and she caught her and brought her slowly to the ground,” Fairfield police Lt. Robert Kalamaras told The Post. “And then she began CPR, basic life support, until officers showed up less than two minutes after the emergency call was made by one of the nursing students.”Responding officers then tried to clear Nelson’s airway, but to no avail. She was rushed to St. Vincent’s Medical Center and was later transferred to the Columbia University Medical Center — where she died Sunday, Kalamaras said.Nelson was a junior at the school, where she studied social work and served on the executive board of the university’s Kappa Delta sorority, according to her LinkedIn page and the organization’s website.
Messages seeking comment from university officials were not immediately returned Monday, but thousands of students attended a memorial vigil for Nelson on Sunday.“Heaven got another angel and we are sad beyond belief for Caitlin’s family,” one user wrote on a Facebook post of the vigil. “No family should have to endure the loss of a child ever and they already lost her dad on 9/11, it’s heart wrenching.”Nelson’s father, James, was a Port Authority police officer who died during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center when Caitlin was just 5 years old, the Connecticut Post reports. The 40-year-old cop also helped evacuate the area after the 1993 bombing.
