The Sun says Gangnam Style killed Burnley man

by | 13th, December 2012

WHEN Eamonn Kilbride passed away, the Lancashire Telegraph reported that the father-of-three collapsed and died at the Thwaites Brewery party at Whitehall Country Club, Darwen. He had been “dancing at his office Christmas party in front of his wife and work colleagues”. Grim. He was just 46. That’s sobering.

He succumbed to acute heart failure. His wife, Julie Kilbride, was celebrating her birthday at the same do.

She said:

“I want people to know how he would help anybody whether it was a life-long friend, or someone he had just met. He was a great family man and he worked so hard. Eamonn was always the life of the party and loved dancing. We were having a fantastic time at the Christmas party and Eamonn had just finished dancing to Gangnam Style.

“He was up on stage and entertaining everybody. He said he had a bit of a pain and just collapsed. I tried to revive him until the ambulance got there, but by the time he got to the hospital he was gone.”

A man who died aged 46 must have had some underlying heart condition.

So. How does the Sun begin its report on the young family man who died suddenly:

Gangnam Style dance kills dad

And the conclusion by two writers who had read Jessica Cree’s original article in the LT:

Earlier this month, Gangnam Style, recorded by Korean star Psy, became the most-watched music video on YouTube with more than 931million hits.
It also won Best Video at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

Because that’s what matters…
