Man stricken eating Heart Attack Grill burgerMan suffers apparent heart attack eating Heart Attack Grill burger in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (AP) ' Menu warnings nearly proved true for a man at a downtown Las Vegas restaurant that offers "Bypass" burgers, "Flatliner" fries and free meals to people over 350 pounds.
Amateur video shows a man being wheeled out of the Heart Attack Grill on a stretcher after a medical episode that restaurant employees say looked like, well, a heart attack.
Eatery owner Jon Basso tells KVVU-TV FOX5 (http://bit.ly/yrz1e1 ) he thought it was a joke when a waitress told him a customer eating a Triple Bypass burger was sweating and shaking.
A Las Vegas fire spokesman tells The Associated Press paramedics were summoned Saturday evening and a man was indeed hospitalized.
Basso says he heard the man is recuperating. His name and the medical condition he suffered weren't released.
