Woman dies after choking at fair
Janet RUDD, 32, was taking part in a marshmallow eating- and-talking contest.
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Fri., September 15, 2006
A disaster waiting to happen
A 32-year-old woman who collapsed after a marshmallow eating-and-talking contest at the Western Fair this week has died in a London hospital, a spokesperson said yesterday.
The woman was identified as Janet RUDD of 68 Grand Ave. by two sources contacted by The Free Press yesterday.
One said RUDD was working at a horticultural booth at the fair with her twin sister, Jennifer, on Tuesday night.
"She took a break and never came back," said the source.
"Janet was a sweet, shy person and they would have had to talk her into the event. I'm sure she would have been a reluctant participant. It's not something you would expect her to do."
A friend said last night the woman's family, who declined comment, wanted to be left alone to mourn in private.
RUDD collapsed offstage Tuesday night just after the daily Chubby Bunny contest.
The event, since cancelled by the fair, requires contestants to pop one marshmallow at a time into their mouths and say "chubby bunny" to amuse spectators until they can't say it anymore.
Saint_John's Ambulance staff came to RUDD's aid with a defibrillator and suction equipment, but were unable to remove the blockage in the unconscious woman's throat.
Thames Valley Emergency Medical Services paramedics took her to Victoria Hospital, where she had remained in critical condition.
A spokesperson for London Health Sciences Centre yesterday said the woman had died.
Manager Dave TAILOR/TAYLOR said Western Fair was informed of the death yesterday.
"We called the family to see how the young woman was and we were told she died last night (Wednesday)," he said.
"The family told us they want to deal with this as a private family matter and Western Fair is going to respect that. Our staff is very upset this happened at the fair."
Fair officials cancelled all remaining Chubby Bunny events after RUDD was taken to hospital.
One source said the twin sisters lived with their parents in the Grand Avenue home in London where they grew up.
"They were very close. They shared a room. I can't imagine how hard this is going to be for Jennifer."
The source said the twins lost a close friend about three months ago who choked to death.
"It's an irony, a tragedy."
She said they were both members of a Bible study group and "very religious, very good women." They attended South secondary school together, she said.
The other source said the twins were active in the Conservative party.
"They were thrilled to meet Stephen Harper (now prime minister) during the federal election campaign early this year," she said.

HOAR, William Stewart
Born August 31, 1913 in Moncton, New Brunswick. Passed away in the early morning hours of June 13th, 2006 at Vancouver General Hospital. Predeceased by his wife Myra (Margaret) in 1996, daughter Kenzie in 1996 and his brother Gerald, he leaves behind his sister Edie OGILVIE (Cal) of Miramachi, New Brunswick, sister-in-law Laura HOAR of Moncton, New Brunswick, son Stewart (Linda) in Green Bay, Wisconsin, son David (Noreen RUDD) in Ladner and daughter Melanie GALLOWAY (Bill) in Vancouver. He was a special grampie for 7 grandchildren and great grampie for 7 who will find his departure leaves special memories. For Bill, family was important and his cousins, nieces and nephews were all a large part of this. He continued to keep alive the gatherings of family and Friends over tea or for the "Saturday Lunch" (or Saturday Lunch on Sunday evening with wine), a tradition that was started with his wife Myra in the fifties when university students and their families were frequent visitors. Bill taught and mentored many students, first at the University of New Brunswick and then at the University of British Columbia where he became the first Professor of Fisheries in 1945. After a distinguished career as a scientist during which he served on many national and international committees and for which he received an Order of Canada and Honourary Degrees from several universities, he went on to write and self publish genealogies under his own publishing enterprise called "Tangled Roots Press". He was a remarkable man who always looked for the good in others and would counsel "sleep on it before reacting". He always said he would pass on as a result of "too many birthdays" and "I'll have to watch out for natural causes". The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Arbutus Care Centre and the 6th floor A.C.E. unit at Vancouver General Hospital who provided the compassion and care he needed to preserve his independence. A celebration of his life will be arranged for later this summer. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the charity of your choice or the "Hoar Memorial Lecture Fund", Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, #2370 - 6270 University Boulevard, Vancouver, British Columbia V6T 1Z4, would be appreciated.

Marshmallow-stuffing contest at Ontario fair kills woman
Playing chubby bunny is 'like spraying Styrofoam' in esophagus, paramedic says
By Joe FRIESEN, Page A2
Janet RUDD was just being helpful when she agreed to take part in what she thought was a bit of lighthearted fun -- a marshmallow-eating contest known as chubby bunny at the Western Fair in London, Ontario
It was a decision that led to her death, and many observers wonder why this game, which killed a 12-year-old girl at an Illinois school in 1999, is still being played.
Janet and her twin Jennifer, 32, were strolling at the fairgrounds Tuesday evening when they were approached by a fair organizer who needed two people for a contest.
The game calls for participants to stuff their mouths with marshmallows until they can no longer say the words "chubby bunny." As more marshmallows are added, the words become increasingly garbled, which is meant to entertain the crowd.
Janet, described as a kind, gentle woman who liked to crochet and lived with her parents, agreed to take part.
Jennifer declined, but watched her sister take the stage with seven other contestants. She made it through the first round with one marshmallow in her mouth. Jennifer then returned to the horticultural booth where the twins were working as volunteers.
A few minutes later, after putting four marshmallows in her mouth, Janet quit the contest and walked away from the stage. Fair officials say she spat out a wad of thick, white goop before leaving, and was 10 metres from the stage before she signalled for help.
She collapsed, unable to breathe. A crowd gathered around her. First-aid workers tried to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and called an ambulance. The local ambulance service was on scene within minutes, but couldn't revive her. According to Chris DARBY, duty manager for Thames ambulance, Janet went into cardiac arrest.
He says there was little the emergency services could do to help.
One of the most dangerous aspects of this contest, he said, is that participants can laugh or cough when their mouths are crammed with thick, melting marshmallows.
"You breathe in at the wrong time and you draw a huge airway obstruction down into your airway that is essentially self-sealing," he said. "It's like spraying Styrofoam in there."
The coroner's office is investigating the incident.
The chubby bunny contest, which once ran alongside country-fair staples such as the potato- and apple-peeling contests, has been cancelled. Fair manager Dave TAILOR/TAYLOR said it won't return next year.
"It was programming that was unfortunate," Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "I would imagine we wouldn't be having that one again out of respect for the family of the deceased."
Joseph Hageman, a pediatric intensive-care specialist in Evanston, Illinois, who wrote a journal article about chubby bunny, is surprised that it was played at a public fair.
"It's really not a game. It's incredibly dangerous. It's something people shouldn't be doing," Doctor Hageman said.
Dr. Hageman's article was a response to the death of 12-year-old Casey Fish, a Grade 6 student from the Chicago suburbs who died after playing chubby bunny at school.
Casey's father, John Fish, has waged a long battle to alert people to the dangers of the game.
"The game is insane," Mr. Fish said in a telephone interview. "You have these esophagus-sized plugs and you're not allowed to chew them or swallow them, but your saliva's acting on them and making them slippery -- I mean it's inevitable that someone is going to die."
Mr. Fish said he had been consoled by the fact he hadn't heard of any other deaths related to chubby bunny, but was deeply sorry to hear of Janet RUDD's death.
"I did everything that I could to try and stop this game. I'm very sorry for the loss of this woman and my heart goes out to her family," he said.
"We appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and she reran the segment twice…. Two of those segments, she ended her show pointing at the camera saying 'Don't play chubby bunny.' The American Academy of Pediatrics also issued a nationwide alert against this game after my daughter's death."
Mr. Fish sued the teacher, the school and the school district. They agreed to a $2-million settlement.
The RUDD family hasn't yet decided whether to take legal action. A funeral is planned for next week.

RUDYK, Margaret " Pearl"
By Bryce RUDYK, Page A16
Mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, lioness. Born December 28, 1953, in Larkhall, Scotland. Died January 11, in Orangeville, Ontario, of cancer, aged 53.
There is no better way to describe my mother, Pearl RUDYK, than as a lioness. Aside from the haircuts that she sported, she was, from an early age, a fierce protector of those she loved. Sometimes, she was a determined and focused predator of all threats -- real or imagined. She had a knack for being right (or at least always believed she was); she pursued difficult arguments; she never, ever gave up without a fight.
Born in Scotland, she came with her parents and older sister, Mary, to Canada in 1958 by boat. She recounted the story of that passage many times through her life, telling of the nights that they had to sit on deck in their lifejackets for fear of icebergs, all the while comforting her older (and severely sea-sick) sister.
In 1971, Pearl met Larry when she sold bingo cards on the midway at the Canadian National Exhibition and Larry was the bingo-caller. After they were married, Larry bought her a dog named Pee-Wee. It was the first of many dogs my mother would treat almost as a child. Our vet said that in her next life, she would like to come back as one of Pearl's dogs.
Pearl and Larry moved to Orangeville in 1974, where Pearl began to work as a conveyancer, which she did up until two months before her death. Her children, Bryce, Andrea and Lindsay, were born in 1977, 1979 and 1983. My siblings and I quickly became the centre of my mother's life. I have few memories of my childhood that do not involve her.
In her incredibly protective way, Pearl sometimes strove to save her clan from the absurd. Despite the relative calm of our portion of Orangeville, I was never allowed to cross the street for fear of that illusory, reckless automobile. Strangely, when it came time for elementary school (complete with a requisite street-crossing), our family suddenly had to move to a house where the bus would pick the children up at the end of the drive.
One might think that she had full hands with a busy job and three children, but my mother seemed to adopt all of our Friends, all of her Friends and even the whole town, as her own. When the town pool closed down, Pearl along with some other mothers, went to the town council to "suggest" that a town with two skating rinks could clearly finance a pool; if the town needed to find money, perhaps it could be taken from the funds for that other most-Canadian sport. While the mothers won that night, not every good deed my mother got involved in was so elaborate. Whether it was a kind word, an attentive ear or a good set of hands to paint a house or clean a basement, she never shied away from just doing what needed to be done.
Perhaps this was my mother's greatest characteristic: that for all of her toughness, for all of her sharp claws and great roar, her efforts weren't about herself, but about those around her. As a strong and beautiful skier, she could easily have made it down most hills her skiing Friends encountered. Instead, she always remained until the last to ensure the weakest skier got down safely. One could always count on her to "bring up the rear."
Until the very end, Pearl never stopped being a mother. On the evening that she died, as her condition grew noticeably worse, Andrea and I called her to say that we would be home soon. Those around her that night say that immediately after the phone call, she calmed down. Even at the end, she wanted to know her children were safe.
Pearl was not perfect: She could be difficult and obstinate, and could lay on a guilt trip from which no one was immune. But she was the quintessential mother and the lives she touched are arguably better for it.
Bryce RUDYK is Pearl's son.
