Tunisian man died after eating 28 raw eggs in one go for a bet.

Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, allegedly wagered a friend he could eat 30 raw eggs in a row, for which he would receive an undisclosed sum.
Mr Fatnassi, from Kairouan in north-east Tunisia, managed 28 eggs before he collapsed with severe stomach pains.

Doesn't seem right...  28 is a lot but to keel over and croak?
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Yeah, I know. Maybe the eggs were poisoned? The article mentioned salmonella, but that takes like 24 hours to develop, from what I hear.

Something doesn't seem quite right. I can see him throwing up, but to just keel over and die? There had to be something else in play here.

Twenty eight eggs is not lethal. You couldn't kill a condemned prisoner by force feeding him 28 eggs.

I think the article is leaving out that the other guy shot him once he got 28 so he wouldn't have to pay up.

Could be, if he was speed-eating. 

Otherwise, the story on face value doesn't make much sense.

Maybe he practised the day before. Or perhaps he ate them with the shell intact? 28 eggs are a lot, and he could have regurgitated, or extended his stomach so much it began bleeding. I wouldn't eat one raw egg, and can't stomach them sunny-side up, either.
