There are so many ironic things about this story that we almost can’t keep track of it all. First of all, a man was whisked away by paramedics when he suffered a heart attack while dining at the aptly-named “Heart Attack Grill” in Las Vegas. He was choking down a “triple-bypass burger” at the time that he started to experience sweats and shaking. The Heart Attack Grill unabashedly offers some of the most nutritionally-unsound menu options on the planet, and the entire menu measures its’ items with medical terms related to heart attacks. The restaurant prides itself on its non-healthy stature, even making the offer on a marquee sign that anyone over 350 pounds in weight eats free. The “triple-bypass burger” is a huge offering with three beef patties that would easily be considered a large hamburger individually. The triple is not the top dog here… there is a “quad-bypass burger” that sports four patties. Of course, the patties are slathered in mayonnaise, cheese, and can be topped with a variety of unsavory options, like bacon.
To make things even more interesting, people seemed to take the moment as a true spectacle, with photos being Tweeted of this man’s misfortune, along with the video below of the chaotic scene as the man was rushed to the hospital.
The good news… the man, who is not being identified, survived the incident and is recovering from his heart attack. No word on what his status would be if he had opted for the “quadruple-bypass.”
