An elderly man and his younger friend died while enjoying dinner together, according to police in France.

Authon-du-Perche police said that a neighbor of the friends found them dead on the balcony of their home.

38-year-old Olivier Boudin and 69-year-old Lucien Perot were having dinner at the elderly man’s home.

The two enjoyed steak and wine on Wednesday night, on the balcony. During the meal, Perot began choking on his steak. He died at the scene.

Boudin was so horrified by watching his friend die, that he had a heart attack. Boudin died at the scene as well.

A neighbor saw the two men on the balcony on Thursday morning, at around 6:00 a.m., and assumed that they were fast asleep.

At 12:00 p.m., when the woman still saw them in the same positions, she thought that they must be really drunk.

In the evening, the woman went over to the balcony and attempted to wake the two. That is when she realized that they were both dead.

She called police, and they were declared dead at the scene.

Autopsies showed that Perot died first as a result of choking on steak while Boudin died of a heart attack.
