clown suffers heart attack
Robert Blasetti is tended to by emergency workers after collapsing at the parade yesterday. He was later pronounced dead.

*Wow, this was a sad turn of events.

Yesterday, a clown collapsed in front of spectators at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and was pronounced dead at the hospital on Thursday.

The 67-year-old man, identified as Robert Blasetti,  went into cardiac arrest while making balloon animals at the corner of Sixth Avenue and West 39th Street, reports the Associated Press.

A Macy’s spokesman said the store was “saddened to report” that a parade marcher had had a medical emergency, but he did not say if the man was a Macy’s employee.

A civilian NYPD worker also was pronounced dead at the hospital after suffering an apparent heart attack on the parade route.
