Another falls victim to Heart Attack Grill heart attack

Restaurant owner noted that woman was also smoking, drinking margarita

By Isolde Raftery

LAS VEGAS — This time the double bypass was blamed. That's a Double Bypass from the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas, where a woman — eating a double-patty beef burger mashed between two lard-covered buns — suffered an apparent heart attack. She was unconscious as she was rushed to the hospital Saturday night; she is expected to recover, KTNV.com reported.

To be fair, the burgers themselves may not be the culprit. The restaurant owner, Jon Basso, noted that the woman was also smoking and drinking a margarita.

"I would say the woman gave her body every single thing it could handle and it finally gave out," Basso told KVVU-TV Fox5.
