That’s the attitude of many liberals

Put restrictive laws in place to guarantee that no one dies accidentally from being a fucking moron.

Turn the world into a bunch of idiots incapable of fending for themselves and judging what;s smart to do and what’s Darwinian.

So this family wants to sue a school for allowing an eating contest because their daughter turned piggy, put too many in her mouth and to paraphrase Witcher 3, “chocked on 3 pounds of pancakes.”

The bonus? She wanted to be a social worker. Now we have one less whiny enabler.

The grieving family of a 20-year-old woman who choked to death during a pancake-eating contest filed a lawsuit against the Connecticut university she was attending in hopes of raising “awareness of the preventable dangers associated with amateur eating competitions.”

Caitlin Nelson, who was participating in Sacred Heart University’s Greek Week celebration on March 30, 2017, reportedly began to shake uncontrollably and fell to the floor after eating multiple pancakes in a short period of time.

Two nursing students who were in attendance at the school-sanctioned charity event attempted lifesaving measures before police and paramedics arrived, Fairfield Police Lt. Bob Kalamaras said at the time. The family’s lawsuit claims responding officers found a mass of pancake paste “like concrete” in Nelson’s airway.

Nelson, of Clark, N.J., was rushed to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, and later transferred to New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center in New York, where she died. Kalamaras described the incident as a “tragic event that started out as something fun.”

“Caitlin’s family is bringing this case to expose the dangers associated with amateur eating contests and to help prevent other families from having to endure this kind of preventable tragedy,” Katie Mesner-Hage, of Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, which represents the family, said in a statement. “These contests are significantly more dangerous than people realize and it’s critically important for the public — especially educational institutions, to understand that certain foods are safer than others and a modicum of forethought can literally save lives.”

The family, who had tragically lost Caitlin Nelson’s dad, a Port Authority officer, in the Sept. 11 terror attacks, donated the aspiring social worker’s organs after her death.

    She was a 20-year-old? A grown woman. Young maybe, but old enough to be considered an adult for all purposes. The family makes it sound like she was a HS teenager.
    If the college was smart (not always a given today), they would have made each contestant sign a waiver and disclaimer.

    Was she a hottie? Choke on freakin’ pancakes? She could have gone to a waffle House and been shot to death. Her asshole parents would have had a better chance of collecting some loot from that law suit.
    Hell, being the generous do-gooder I am I would have loaned her something to “choke-on” that would have included a little taste of specialized syrup.
