A trained paramedic choked after forcing three Choco Pies into her mouth during a cake-eating competition in Russia.
Alexandra Yudina started to choke after she emptied her plate in a bar in Moscow in a race with two other participants.
The 23-year-old gasped and apparently dropped to the floor with her mouth still full of cake.
Bar staff and some of her friends with medical qualifications rushed to help her, but could not lift the block.

An ambulance crew arrived at the Killfish bar, but could not save the life of the 23-year-old.
Images of the horrific incident were shared by partygoers at the Moscow location, while CCTV images were shown on Russian television.
After Alexandra walked away from the table where the competition was held, the footage shows a photographer taking her photo while suddenly becoming unstable.
She seemed to go to the toilet, but she collapsed to the floor despite a friend’s attempts to catch her.
A newspaper from Moscow said that Alexandra, known to her friends as Sasha, had been diagnosed with leukemia six months ago and had told friends that she wanted to use every opportunity to have fun.
However, her grieving father Vasily Yudin, 57, has not confirmed her illness.

There have been reports that Alexandra, known to her friends as Sasha, was diagnosed with leukemia six months ago
Reports said that Sasha was not going to participate in a food competition when she went out Saturday night, but joined when it started.
Each participant received three small cakes, probably Choco cakes with a marshmallow filling.
The images show that Alexandra is trying to put two of them in her mouth after eating the first one, causing her to choke.
Earlier in the evening, Alexandra would have liked to ‘drink, dance and photograph’, friends said.
The 23-year-old had graduated from a medical university with a qualification as a paramedic.
