Two sent to hospital after World's Hottest Chilli contest
It was a chili eating contest and the ‘Kismot Killer’ left a number of the participants gasping for breath and, literally floored. They had not reckoned with the ‘heat’ factor of the chillies and it left them bewildered. Some of them were seen writhing on the floor, vomiting and even fainting and had to be hospitalized.
The contest was organized by a curry house in Scotland in aid of charities and Abdul Ali, the owner of the joint admitted that although the collection of pounds was good, many participants left after witnessing the ‘chilli factor’.
The crown of ‘Curry Queen’ was bagged by Beverly Jones of Newington – she managed to down nine spoonfuls of the chili-filled dish; Curie, an exchange student of Korea came second.
