Man Suffers Cardiac Arrest at the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas

February 15, 2012

Shortly after eating a Triple Bypass Burger, a man in his 40s suffered a heart attack at the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas. The theme restaurant is famous for its calorie-filled fare; the Quadruple Bypass burger, for example, contains over 8,000 calories, and other menu items include Flatliner Fries and Butterfat Milkshakes. Posted signs warn that the food is dangerous to your health, and the restaurant's slogan is "Taste Worth Dying For."

"I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt," said manager Jon Basso. "Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that." It's the first full-blown heart attack at the Las Vegas eatery. Basso told Fox 5 Vegas that he'd heard the man is "alive and recuperating."

Check out a video of the story below. Who do you think is at fault: the man or the restaurant?

Sorry to speak ill of the dead, but nobody was making him eat there!

Correction: didn't mean to say he's dead, just noticed that he is 'alive and recuperating'. But I will stand by the rest of what I've said!
