A 27-year-old devoted Manchester United fan named Thomas Kiptanui Kemboi, also known as Kapkeno, found himself in a risky situation when a lighthearted bet took a potentially tragic turn.
He had jokingly pledged to eat an entire tray of boiled eggs if his beloved Red Devils suffered a loss to Arsenal in the English Premier League.
To his shock Man United lost 3-1 to Arsenal, true to his word, he embarked on the task of eating those boiled eggs.
Surrounded by his friends and a videographer, the artist, renowned for his track ‘Wachawi,’ initiated a live session on his Facebook page.
To enhance his protein-rich feast, he had some salt and tomato sauce within reach.
However, he wisely took regular breaks to sip water, ensuring he didn’t run the risk of choking on the eggs.
“Due to the loss of Manchester United to Arsenal, I (Kapkeno) am fulfilling my promise of eating one tray of eggs for my fans,” Kapkeno wrote on his Facebook page.
Nevertheless, as Kapkeno tackled his 15th egg, he suddenly collapsed.
His friends initially burst into laughter, assuming it was all part of a playful stunt.
However, their mood swiftly soured when they realized he genuinely felt overwhelmed.
Panic set in, and they rushed him to the hospital, where doctors diagnosed him with severe constipation.
Kapkeno received the necessary medication and the hospital eventually discharged him once his condition had stabilized.
