CUSTER, S.D. (AP) -- A Fourth of July hot dog eating contest in Custer turned tragic when a contestant choked to death.

Custer County Sheriff Rick Wheeler says 47-year-old Walter Eagle Tail, of Custer, died Thursday at a hospital after attempts at the scene to save him failed.

The Custer Chamber of Commerce sponsored the contest. The group canceled a pie-eating contest scheduled for Friday.

Chamber Executive Director Dave Ressler says the group is ''at a loss for words.''
