A Tunisian man may have won his bet--to eat 28 raw eggs--but in doing so, he lost his life.

Dhaou Fatnassi, a 20-year-old man from the town of Kairouan, swallowed more than two dozen raw eggs on a dare from his friends.

According to Tunesia's Shems FM radio, the friends called an ambulance after realizing something was wrong, but it was too late.

“Doctors were called in after the young man felt strong stomach pains, but he died before medical assistance could reach him,” the report said.

An official cause of death has not yet been determined.
