A 46-year-old man collapsed with chest pains and died while dancing a la 'Gangnam Style' at his office's holiday party last weekend in Blackburn, according to The Independent.

The sudden death of Eamonn Kilbride, father of three, has "prompted a warning to middle aged men not to attempt the vigorous dance from the hit video," said the newspaper.

Proffesor Bernard Keavney, a consultant cardiologist at Newcastle University advised middle aged men against getting too wild while dancing at holiday events.

“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.

Kilbride had been at the holiday party with his wife, Julie, who called him "the life of the party."
