This one was reported on a fractured usage thread (first hit). I’m slowly working my way through these; there are some interesting ones. Claps or clapped lung must be the dreadful sound the two sides of your lung make coming together. Or maybe those organs are clapped out. But note that nobody’s winning spelling bees here.
they said you had a clap lung and you had a heartact

Great image reworking. More than just lungs can claps:
: “ help to get out the people that are trap inside claps buildings.”
: “It was somewhere around 3am when they claps into bed breathing heavy and falling asleep.”
: “And then on the last beat, they all clapped into a heap on the floor.”
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
