WASHINGTON ? A restaurant owner in Akron, Ohio who served breakfast to President Barack Obama on Friday morning died hours later of a heart attack, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.

Josephine ?Ann? Harris, 70, complained of ?fatigue and a tingling feeling? shortly after Obama left her family diner, Ann?s Place. She was taken by ambulance to Akron General Medical Center, and by 11:18 a.m., she was pronounced dead from an apparent heart attack. Harris met ? and hugged ? Obama just after 8:00 a.m., when he stopped in unannounced for breakfast.
