LAS VEGAS (AP) — The owner of a hospital-themed Las Vegas restaurant known for its high-calorie menu says another patron has suffered an apparent medical episode there.

Heart Attack Grill owner Jon Basso told KVVU (http://bit.ly/I6dmmw ) that a woman had been eating, drinking alcohol and smoking before she fell unconscious Saturday night. It was unclear whether her medical issue was related to the food.

It was at least the second medical episode inside the restaurant that glorifies unhealthy eating. Its menu includes dishes called "Quadruple Bypass Burger," ''Flatliner" fries and free meals to people over 350 pounds.

A man was stricken in mid-February and taken to the hospital while eating a "Triple Bypass Burger."

The condition of the unidentified woman was not immediately known. She was wheeled out of the downtown restaurant by paramedics.
