LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA- A man claims he suffered a serious heart condition after wearing a Donkey Kong ape costume and he sued Nintendo, the maker of the video game.

Parker Mills was hired to play the ape character by the Los Angeles Zoo in May for the launch of the Nintendo 3DS game. Mills claims he didn't get breaks, was forced to talk to zoo visitors and didn't get a required ice pack to cool him off.

His lawyer claims Mills suffered a tear of his aortic walls and now has heart damage and is required to use a permanent heart defibrillator.

Mills claims a Nintendo ambassador hired to escort him didn't provide proper oversight.
