One young man in Tunisia was positive he would win the bet that he could ingest 28 raw eggs in one sitting. He was right – but he did not stop to think about the possible health implications of such an act.
The man, News.com reports, is dead, presumably because he got food poisoning from Salmonella, a type of bacteria that can be found in raw eggs.
“Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, from the town of Kairouan, swallowed the eggs after his friends challenged him to do so for an undisclosed sum of money,” the publication says.
“The young man then experienced stomach pains and was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, Shems FM reported,” the same media outlet says.
An investigation to determine the exact cause of death is now underway. That the man died of food poisoning is, as of this moment, just speculation.
