A couple of Australian troublemakers have filmed the moment their friend dressed in a bunny suit believes that his practical joke has backfired and triggered a heart attack which killed a man.
Prankster Michael had agreed to take part in a funny video which documents how random passers-by in Adelaide react to being scared by a human-sized rabbit.
But when he jumps out to shock a father and daughter, he is horrified to discovers the old man has a heart condition.

He scares a father and daughter but he is led to believe that the fright has given the man a heart attack
Mark and Richy, who call themselves The Royal Stampede, sneakily film Michael’s reaction as the old man is apparently rushed to hospital.
‘I just gave the guy a heart attack… this is the worst day of my life,’ Michael said as he repeatedly apologises to the father and daughter for what he’s done.
A visibly distressed Michael paces back and forth as he waits outside the hospital to hear back about the father’s condition.

When he receives a call from the daughter, who delivers the bad news, Michael begins to grieve.
But then, the man who’s supposedly dead emerges from the hospital – alive and well – as Michael discovers he’s been fooled.
‘I’m glad you’re alive,’ he said as he embraced the old man.
