'Gangnam Style' death prompts warning to middle-aged men not to attempt the vigorous dance
The death of a father-of-three who collapsed while dancing to Gangnam Style has prompted a warning to middle-aged men not to attempt the vigorous dance from the hit video.
Eamonn Kilbride, 46, collapsed with chest pains at his office party in Blackburn last weekend after performing the dance moves made famous by the South Korean rapper Psy, who mimics riding a horse.
Professor Bernard Keavney, a consultant cardiologist at Newcastle University, has warned older men not to “stray outside your comfort zone” while dancing at their Christmas parties this year.
“The chance that you’ll come to grief is very small. But as with any form of untypical exercise … be somewhat measured. Let the lady dance around you,” he told The Daily Telegraph.
Mr Kilbride had been with his wife, Julie, who was celebrating her birthday the same night. She paid tribute to her “loving husband” of 23 years, calling him “the life of the party.”
Mr Kilbride, an IT manager, had three children, Laurajade, 22, Jack, 21, and Conor, 18, all of whom are at university.
