Man dies after eating too many eggs

He was egged on for a bet

A young Tunisian died after winning a bet to eat 28 raw eggs in one sitting, Shems FM radio reports.

Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, from the central town of Kairouan, swallowed the eggs after his friends challenged him to do so for an undisclosed sum of money.

The young man then experienced stomach pains and was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
