A diner went into cardiac arrest while chowing down on the 6,000-calorie Triple Bypass Burger at the Heart Attack Grill this past weekend. Adding to the macabre, the Heart Attack Grill's employees dress up in nurse outfits and the restaurant's motto is "Taste Worth Dying For."
Reports and amateur videos (video below) are coming in today about the ordeal. "He was having the sweats and shaking," "Nurse" Bridgett, told Las Vegas's Fox 5 News. Bridgett had been working when a man in his 40s began experiencing chest pains mid-chew of his Triple Bypass Burger. "One of the nurses came back to me and said, ‘Dr. Jon, we've got a patient who's in trouble,'" said "Doctor" John Basso the owner of the restaurant. While it's nice Bridgett didn't flinch and stuck with the patient-doctor lexicon of the Heart Attack Grill, the patient is recovering and being treated by real doctors, reports KVUU.
