Future Darwin Award Recipient of the Day: A patron of the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas went all literal on employees and had to be carted out of the restaurant on a gurney by EMTs.
The establishment where customers over 350 pounds eat for free and a sign on the wall reads “a taste worth dying for” is known for serving 6,000 calorie burgers stacked high with cheese and bacon.
The unidentified man, who was in the process of scrafing down a Triple Bypass Burger, began sweating and shaking profusely, prompting one of the nurse-themed waitresses to alert the restaurant’s proprietor, “Doctor” Jon Basso.
“One of the nurses came back to me and said, ‘Dr. Jon, we’ve got a patient who’s in trouble,” said Basso. As Fox 5 Vegas deemed it necessary to note, “Doctor” Jon is not a real doctor, so he phoned 911 and told them to send an ambulance.
“I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt,” Basso told Fox 5. “Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that.”
He said this was the first real heart attack the Heart Attack Grill has experienced.
Meanwhile, the “patient” is reportedly “alive and recuperating.”
