The "Gangnam Style" Dance Has Literally Killed A Man

(Not an Onion story.)

This is Eamonn Kilbride, a 46-year-old father of three and IT manager at a brewery in northwest England.

Kilbride was pronounced dead Saturday night after collapsing at a holiday party. His wife told the tragic story to the Sun:

“It was my birthday too that day and we were having a really good night. Eamonn had not complained of being ill and it was so sudden. He had just finished dancing to Gangnam Style with his pals on stage when he came back over to me. He kissed me and told me I was beautiful. He then said he was going to the toilet because he had a bit of chest pain. On the way there Eamonn saw his boss and was still laughing and joking with her. He then walked round the corner and collapsed.”

“Eamonn was always the life of the party and loved dancing … I tried to revive him until the ambulance got there, but by the time he got to the hospital he was gone.”
