The Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas strikes once again! For the second time in the last couple of months, a customer collapsed while eating a so-called "double bypass burger."

Reportedly, the women (in her mid forties) had been eating, consuming alcohol and smoking when she fell to the floor. An ambulance wheeled her out and she was rushed to a local hospital, where she is expected to recover. The exact medical reason as to what caused her to lose consciousness has not been announced.

"We attract an avant-garde clientele--thrill-seekers, risk-takers," said Jon Basso, owner of the restaurant which is known for its vastly unhealthy food. He also proclaimed that his eatery was "bad for you, but fun" and was popular with "people who don't really take good care of their health."

Um, seriously why is this guy still in business? He totally exploits people dealing with weight issues and obesity.  In fact, one of his policies is that those who weigh more than 350 pounds can eat there for free! Isn't that absolutely ridiculous? How is that even legal? I mean, shouldn't there be some health law that prevents restaurant owners from literally serving people a heart attack on a plate?

What's worse is that people continue to eat there despite the insanely harmful ingredients and portions too big for anyone's stomach. Didn't anyone learn their lesson after the first time someone collapsed there because of "chest pains"? This restaurant needs to be shut down immediately before someone else gets hurt.
