(USA TODAY) - A male diner suffered a heart attack at the aptly named Las Vegas eatery Heart Attack Grill while chowing down on a 6,000-calorie Triple Bypass Burger, KVVU reports.
"He was having the sweats and shaking," according to "Nurse" Bridgett, a waitress at the restaurant who wears medical garb.

"Doctor" Jon Basso, who opened the restaurant in October, tells the Fox5 TV station he thought at first it was a joke, then quickly realized it was no laughing matter.
Basso says the unidentified 40-something diner, who was quickly whisked away by paramedics Saturday night, is alive and recuperating.
"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 says.
As for the diners, they kept downing their Bypass Burgers and Flatliner Fries during the ordeal.
