A man having a heavy burger at Heart Attack Grill today actually had a real heart attack and paramedics had to be called to save him.

Heart Attack Grill really lived up to its name on Saturday night, when a man eating their burger actually suffered a heart attack. The restaurant, which is located in downtown Las Vegas, is known for its rich and heavy food, which is so unhealthy that even the restaurant admits to its health hazards. There are various health warnings placed around the restaurant to warn people of the potential health problems which they might face if they eat their food. The waitresses at the restaurant are dressed as nurses and the owner of heart attack grill, whose name is Jon Basso, is known to be a fake doctor. The restaurant makes its burgers and fries with the unhealthiest and fattening ingredients and boasts this fact. The burgers offered at the restaurant are single bypass burger, double bypass burger, triple bypass burger and quadruple bypass burger.

The customer who suffered heart attack at the restaurant was eating the famous triple bypass burger. Initially, when the man started experiencing the heart attack symptoms, people thought that he was just faking the heart attack. "He was having the sweats and shaking," said ‘Nurse' Bridgett, who was working at the restaurant when the man in his 40s began experiencing chest pain.

The owner of the restaurant, 'Doctor' Jon Basso told the reporters that he himself thought that the news was a joke when he first heard it. "One of the nurses came back to me and said, ‘Dr. Jon, we've got a patient who's in trouble.'" Basso said that when he actually went and saw the man, he was sure that he was not joking and that the situation was serious. "The gentleman could barely talk," said Basso. "He was sweating, suffering. Anyone with an ounce of compassion would've felt for him."

"I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that," he said.

Basso then called the paramedics to the scene by calling 911 and they arrived promptly. The man, whose identity has still not been disclosed, was taken to the hospital, where he is recuperating at the moment.
