An Egyptian man died of joy when he managed to buy a gas cylinder at a much cheaper price after waiting for nearly three hours.

The unnamed man, 25, went to a cooperative society in the capital Cairo to buy the cylinder and waited in a queue for nearly three hours.

“He had apparently thought the cylinders would run out before he gets one…when he bought it, he was so happy that he suffered from a heart attack and died,” the Saudi Al-Arabiya news network said.
