A client eating at the guts Attack Grill in Las Vegas suffered a heart attack on Feb. eleven whereas eating the restaurant’s signature Triple Bypass Burger.
The restaurant opened in Nevada in October 2011 and is modeled when the initial Heart Attack Grill in Arizona, that operates outside of Phoenix. The restaurant serves high-fat meals that high out at over eight,000 calories. Heart Attack Grill conjointly offers free meals to anyone who weighs over 350 pounds and hires attractive waitresses who dress as nurses.
It was one amongst those “nurses” who told owner Jon Basso that the client was in distress. “He was having the sweats and shaking,” “Nurse” Bridgett told Las Vegas station KVUU.
Basso, who initially thought she was joking, called 911. Paramedics rushed the person to a neighborhood hospital, where he’s reportedly recovering. His name has not been disclosed.
While all of this was occurring, different customers conjointly thought it absolutely was a joke and took photos. “I truly felt horrible for the gentleman as a result of the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some sort of stunt,” Basso told KVUU. Amateur video, that seems below, shows EMTs wheeling the client out of the restaurant.
The Heart Attack Grill earned notoriety in March 2011 when its 575-pound 29-year-old spokesman, Blair River, gave up the ghost from pneumonia.
