Panic stricken Australian bodybuilder Joshua Lenartowicz found Dallas McCarver not breathing and blue in his Boca Raton , Florida home and called 911.

 There’s something in his throat.  Every time I do mouth to mouth there’s like something in his throat I can’t  get it out,’ Lenartowicz told the 911 operator. 

‘He just gargles out.’

‘He was eating something.’ 

The champion bodybuilder Dallas McCarver died after he choked on his food at home in Florida.

The 26-year-old bodybuilding superstar known to fans as ‘Big Country’ was found unconscious Monday evening at his home in Boca Raton by a friend shortly after speaking on the phone with his girlfriend WWE star Dana Brooke, TMZ reported.

Brooke, whose real name is Ashley Mae Sebera, said the last thing McCarver told her was that he was going to cook dinner and said, ‘I love you. Goodbye.’ 

She said his cause of death is believed to be choking on food, and that she was told there were no signs of foul play. 

In addition, she said it does not appear that the 26-year-old tried to harm himself.

Public Information Manager of the Boca Raton Police Department Mark Economou told the Hollywood Life a similar statement and said, ‘the cause of death is pending on the Medical Examiner’s report. At this time foul play is not suspected.’ 

Earlier on Monday, McCarver appeared to be fine as he worked out in a local gym and posted a video to Instagram where he chest-pressed 160 pound dumbbells in each hand with the assistance of his friend Josh Lenartowicz. 

He captioned the video: ‘Could’ve been a little slower and better under control wth (sic) these 160s today… but sometimes you’ve just got to let the intensity flow. Great chest day with @josh_lenartowicz in @project_flex_fl#DragonsLair ! That damn @redcon1official#Silencer had me sweating like a whore in church boy! Whew!!!! #HotAsHell #LoveIt#DoTheHardSfuff #bigcountry#dallasmccarver #outgrowyourego#redcon1’ 

McCarver was the face of RedCon1, an online sports supplement and training apparel site that he often promoted on his social media accounts.

The CEO of the RedCon1, Aaron Singeman, recounted in an emotional Facebook video how he found out that McCarver died. 

Singeman said that Lenartowicz, who was McCarver’s roommate, ‘found him face down in the kitchen and not breathing.

‘So they cleared out his passageways and removed the food in their, the blockage. 

‘And Josh actually cleared the passageways and removed the blockage, did CPR and when the ambulance came they continued. 

‘Brought him to the hospital and tried to resuscitate him, but unfortunately it didn’t work out.’ 

He added that McCarver ‘was generous and kind to everybody.’  

The 6’1′, 300-lb athlete began competing in the bodybuilding circuit when he was 21 and quickly started winning popular competitions.

Last year he placed 8th in the 2016 Mr. Olympia competition. 

Back in March, McCarver suffered a health scare when he collapsed onstage at the 2017 Arnold Classic Australia.

At the time, he apparently had an upper respiratory infection that became a ‘bad case of bronchitis’ which lead to his collapse, The Hollywood Life reported.
