Heart Attack Grill victim: Woman collapses at notorious burger joint
There is a place — far, far away — where nurses bring patients in hospital gowns large platters of burgers and fries, where overeating is encouraged, not frowned upon — especially for people who are already obese. A doctor walks around, ensuring you’re enjoying you burger, which may clock in at upwards of 10,000 calories.
What kind of hospital is this, you ask? Why, it’s no hospital at all. It’s the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas, though this restaurant is no stranger to people who need medical attention.
For the second time this year, a customer collapsed in the famed eatery and had to be rushed to the hospital. The woman who hit the floor on Saturday was in the midst of a “double bypass” burger, a margarita and a cigarette. She is expected to recover, according to KTNV.
It’s unknown whether she suffered a heart attack, like the man who collapsed at the restaurant back in February, in the middle of his own meal.
But the menu’s two victims don’t seem to be deterring hungry patrons who don’t seem to mind that the restaurant’s slogan — “a burger to die for” — is beginning to seem more like a warning, than a joke.
