Clown collapses, dies marching in Macy's parade

A clown suffered a fatal collapse in front of spectators at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Manhattan.

The New York Post says the 67-year-old man went into cardiac arrest as he made balloon animals at Sixth Avenue and West 39th Street on Thursday. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Spokesman Orlando Veras said Macy's was "saddened to report" that a parade marcher had suffered a medical emergency. He declined to say whether the man was a Macy's employee.

The Post says a civilian NYPD worker also became fatally ill during the parade. He suffered an apparent heart attack while hooking up a vehicle to be towed off the parade route at West 57th Street and Sixth Avenue. He also was pronounced dead at a hospital.
