Woman slammed for saying heart attack victim ‘ruined’ her meal

A US woman who blasted restaurant staff who did not attend to her while another woman was having a heart attack has been slammed online.

Holly Jones posted a nasty tirade about Kilroy’s N’ Grill, Indiana, after her meal on New Year’s Eve was “ruined” when she had to watch a “dead person being wheeled out from an overdose”.

“Every year we have come to Kilroy’s to enjoy New Years Eve and tonight we were screamed at and had the manager walk away from us while were trying to figure out our bill being messed up,” Jones, a hairdresser from Indianapolis, wrote on Facebook.

“The manager also told us someone dying was more important then [sic] us being there making us feel like our business didn’t matter, but I guess allowing a junkie in the building to overdose on your property is more important than paying customers who are spending a lot of money.”

Unfortunately for the misinformed Ms Jones, the “overdosing junkie” was a woman who was having dinner with her husband and son.

She was taken to IU Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis in a critical condition, according to a GoFundMe fundraising page set up by her daughter Tohnna Wymer.

Restaurant manager Chris Burton took to Facebook to slam the “cold hearted” Ms Jones.

He posted: “Thankfully she was finally revived at the hospital and survived. It sounds like you were very concerned about her so I thought you should know.”
