Pueblo man wins Key West conch blowing contest

Cox, a 38-year-old Pueblo, Co., resident honored his father by winning the men's division of the 2014 competition Saturday. Contestants in the annual "conch honk" were evaluated on the quality, novelty, duration and loudness of sounds they produced. (AP Photo/Florida Keys News Bureau, Rob O'Neal)
