Nintendo sued after actor suffers heart condition in Donkey Kong suit
Attorneys for the actor tell the LA Times that he was denied breaks and not provided with a required ice pack, which led to a tearing of his aortic wall, which required surgery and implantation of a heart defibrillator.
The actor was hired to wear the suit on May 24, 2013, for the launch of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. Attorneys for the actor also say a company ambassador hired to escort him and control activities did not provide proper oversight.
On a lighter note, both the Donkey Kong Country Returns and its 3D remake were pretty good.
