Second Customer Collapses at Heart Attack Grill

Another diner has suffered a medical emergency while eating at the meat and lard-laden burger joint.

Just two months after a similar incident occurred, a second diner has collapsed mid-meal at Las Vegas’ Heart Attack Grill. According to local news outlet Fox5, the woman, who was reportedly eating the diner’s fatty fare while smoking and drinking alcohol, suffered an unspecified medical emergency, requiring immediate hospitalization. Owner John Basso maintains that his restaurant’s food wasn’t the sole contributor to the woman’s medical troubles. “I would say that this woman had given her body every single thing it would handle and the body finally gave out,” Basso says. The controversial eatery first made headlines in February after a customer suffered a heart attack while eating its famed Triple Bypass Burger—a one-and-a-half pound sandwich containing three beef patties.
