MAN DANCING HIMSELF TO DEATH

WHILE HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS PLEAD FOR HIM TO STOP, MAN CONTINUES WITH  QUEST TO END HIS LIFE DANCING HIMSELF TO DEATH

BRIDGEPORT

Lefty Foot in his 46th hour
of continuous dancing.
The young wife of Lefty Foot blames his parents.  Thirty years ago Hugo and Emma Foot brought twin boys into the world and named them Left and Right.  Right Foot died of an athletes disease as a baby.  Left or Lefty as he was called, survived and grew up in fear of fungus. With a name like Left Foot, he spent his childhood as a loner.   At twenty-five he met Idarya Sucklebun at a football rally and they were married two months later. 
"I can understand how he feels," Mrs. Foot said. "As a married couple, when people see us come into a room they don't say, here comes the Foots, it's, here comes the Feet. It's awful!" 
Last Friday Foot had had enough.  The jokes and innuendos about his name caused him to take negative action. According to his wife, after watching  a video of "Saturday Night Fever" something in him snapped.  He got up off the sofa and went immediately into the bedroom. He came out a few minutes later in his dancing clothes.  He kissed his wife and started dancing.  He hasn't stopped since. He danced out the door, down the street, and into  the nearest dance lounge.  
Monday morning found Foot still dancing inside the Caribou Club.  The club owner agreed to keep the doors open at the insistence of Mrs. Foot who continues to plead for her husband to stop.  Local officials were called, as well as a medical team to monitor Foot.  One doctor told CHANNEL 1 NEWS,  this may be the first documented case of Boogie Fever.
Foot has been communicating with those around him and expressed sorrow that he was putting them through his "dance of death", but it was all about the beat. A film crew has been called in to document the event as Tweets, and comments are starting to pour in from around the world.  One particular Tweet from John Travolta, wished him well.  
A representative of the Guinness Brothers Books of Records, told reporters that if Foot succeeds in dancing himself to death, he will start a new category and hold the record.  Not what his wife wanted to hear.
CHANNEL 1 NEWS will follow this story until the music stops.
