"Gangnam Style" Death: Man Suffers Heart Attack After Dancing to PSY's Hit Song

PSY, Gangam Style

A British father-of-three died from a heart attack last weekend after dancing to "Gangnam Style" at an office party.

Eamonn Kilbride, 46, had been mimicking the horse moves that Korean rapper PSY does in the video for his hit song when he began to have chest pains and collapsed.

"He was up on stage and entertaining everybody," Kilbride's wife, Julie, who tried to revive him, told the Telegraph. "He was a great family man and he worked so hard. Eamonn was always the life of the party and loved dancing."

Kilbride's death prompted Professor Bernard Keavney, a consultant cardiologist at Newcastle University, to issue a warning to men to not "stray outside your comfort zone" at Christmas parties.

"The chance that you'll come to grief is very small. But as with any form of untypical exercise that you're not used to taking, be somewhat measured. Let the lady dance around you," he told the Telegraph.
