A father of three collapsed and died from a heart attack after dancing to Psy’s "Gangnam Style" at his office Christmas party in Blackburn, England.

Eamonn Kilbride, 46, an IT manager at Thwaites brewery, had been enjoying an office party at a country club with his wife, Julie, on Saturday night. Julie Kilbride told The Sun that her husband had been on a stage dancing and "entertaining everybody." Shortly after, he collapsed.


After failed attempts at resuscitation, Kilbride was rushed to Royal Blackburn Hospital, where paramedics pronounced him dead a short time later. A coroner’s report indicated Eamonn Kilbride died from acute heart failure, a condition which can be exacerbated by vigorous exercise.

The news has prompted health professionals to warn individuals not to "stray outside (their)comfort zone" during the festive season. Professor Bernard Keavney, a cardiologist at Newcastle University, told The Telegraph that men should "be somewhat measured" about the exercise they do.
