Man Has Heart Attack While Eating Burger At Heart Attack Grill
Quote:Millions of Americans watch what they eat. But one Las Vegas man has painfully discovered that where you eat can have a big impact on your health as well. In a story almost too bizarre to be true, a man suffered a heart attack after eating a "triple bypass burger" at the Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas, local affiliate Fox5 reports.

As comically tragic as that may sound, no one can sue the restaurant for not issuing fair warning. Its website proudly proclaims the menu offers, "Taste Worth Dying For!" (Fortunately, the man in question survived his attack.)

Still, it was the first actual known cardiac incident at the Heart Attack Grill. "He was having the sweats and shaking," "Nurse" Bridgett, who was working at the restaurant at the time of the incident, told Fox5. (Employees at the restaurant are given fake medical titles, including the establishment's owner, "Doctor" Jon Basso.)

"I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that," Bosso told Fox5. "He was sweating, suffering. Anyone with an ounce of compassion would've felt for him."

Crazy.

The autumn after graduating high school I worked in a sandwich shop. Terrible stuff - greasy Philly cheesesteaks, salty chicken teriyaki sandwiches, etc. A woman in her sixties had a heart attack right there in the restaurant.

Worst part was, when we called 911, we were directed to an automatic messaging system - "Operators are overloaded, please wait for the next, blah blah..."

What if you cut off your arm or something? Hold for the operator? Bad times.
