Man eats 28 raw eggs, dies

DEATH by egg. It isn't the most glamourous way to shuffle off this mortal coil but that's how it ended for one man after he ate 28 of them - raw.

The young Tunisian man has reportedly died after winning a bet to eat 28 raw eggs in one go.

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 young man then experienced stomach pains and was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, Shems FM reported.

Are they sure it was from eating the eggs?

I bet that one or more of the eggs contain some deadly viruses. Normally, they die from boiling or well cook. I guess not good to eat eggs raw.

I used to put raw eggs into homemade milkshakes when I was young, never did me any harm, but never tried 28 at once :p

If it were a virus, it wouldn't kill the person in that short amount of time.

Unless it was the T-Virus

yes you are... eggs are eaten raw by 1000s of species ... they should not have harmed him to the point of death ... I suspect something else was the cause

While I don't necessarily agree or disagree, what could/would have caused him to die then?

Ask the coroner. :p

It's not impossible for something to do with the eggs to have killed him; but it wouldn't have been anything to do with any kind of pathogen in them. He died too quickly for that.

Possibly one was poisoned, or more likely, he had some kind of allergic reaction.

Oh Allergic reaction, that would do it. Maybe there was something else in the mix, a drink, some other food or something? A bet this crazy I bet they were at a bar or something.

Can high cholesterol levels be the cause?

I enjoy the taste of raw eggs. Drink two with a bit of salt pretty much every day.

Never had the need to drink more than that at once, but I bet it wouldn't kill me. There's just no reason for it to kill.

Some other cause was definitely involved.

Who did he think he was "Cool Hand Luke" ?

This is eggsactly the kind of eggstreme behavior I would expect for an eggciting , eggstravagent and eggsplosive display of stupid ! Feel sorry for the doctors who had to eggsamine the body. I just hope the funeral costs are not eggstortionate, as its a lot to shell out these days :laugh:

Did he do it to impress a chick ?

Thats all yolks !

There's something undocumented going on here. Something in the eggs we don't know about... an easter egg, perhaps.

he could have a very slight allergy to the proteins in the egg? eating to much of one thing even if good for you can kill you (bannanas for example) he could of simply OD'ed on eggs lol or had a reaction he was having stomach pains it sounds like a rejection rather then some kind of virus ... the eggs them selves could have be contaminated with farm yard chemicals who knows :p

Clicked on the source link, expecting to see more information; instead I saw an example of **** journalism.

Maybe a bad reaction to the eggs.

He died too quickly for that.

How have you established the timeframe?

I don't see why he couldn't have died from sepsis due to Salmonella infection from consuming multiple raw eggs.

Going by the article itself...

Clearly indicating there was a short time period between ingestion and death. Far too fast for a salmonella infection; that would take in the order of multiple hours to manifest, and many more to kill him.
