Did 'Heart Attack' burger claim a second victim at Vegas diner?
This time the double bypass was blamed.
That's a Double Bypass from the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas, where a woman -- eating a double-patty beef burger mashed between two lard-covered buns -- suffered an apparent heart attack. She was unconscious as she was rushed to the hospital Saturday night; she is expected to recover, KTNV.com reported.
To be fair, the burgers themselves may not be the culprit. The restaurant owner, Jon Basso, noted that the woman was also smoking and drinking a margarita.
"I would say the woman gave her body every single thing it could handle and it finally gave out," Basso told KVVU-TV Fox5.
This is the second time in three months that someone has collapsed while eating a burger at the Heart Attack Grill, where the motto is "Taste worth dying for." Guests are described as patients in the restaurant's stated quest against anorexia.
In February, a man in his 40s was eating a Triple Bypass when he began sweating and shaking.
