A 20-year-old man in Tunisia died after eating 28 raw eggs in a bet with friends, news reports say.

The man reportedly ate more than two dozen eggs in one sitting after friends dared him to do it, according to news.com.au. Shortly after swallowing the raw eggs, the man complained of severe stomach pains and his friends called an ambulance to the scene just outside of Kairouan, Tunisia.

Tunisia’s Shems FM radio station said on Wednesday that “doctors were called ... but he died before medical assistance could reach him.”

The official cause of death has not been determined.
