The Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas claimed another victim when a woman collapsed while eating a double bypass burger on Saturday night. In February, a man suffered a heart attack at the same location while attempting to consume a 6,000 calorie triple bypass burger. Seeing a pattern here?

According to the restaurant’s owner, Jon Basso, the woman had been smoking, drinking, dancing and eating the burger, which consists of two half-pound meat patties and multiple slices of American cheese, when she was found unconscious.

Paramedics quickly arrived on the scene and administered aid, and the woman is now reportedly recovering at a local hospital. Still, Basso said, he’s not surprised that things took an artery-clogging turn. “When you treat your body like that day in and day out, eventually your body is going to give out,” he said, adding that the restaurant itself is a “mecca for unhealthy lifestyles.”

The restaurant is known for its stance against diet culture. In fact, they recently received a Guinness World Record for the world’s highest calorie hamburger and lets any customer who weighs over 350 pounds eat for free. Sounds yummy! Anyone up for a quadruple bypass with those fries?
