    I know there have been other morbidly obese men but at some point these weight totals can't be true. Can a human body even function at this weight (1345 pounds). You just have to believe they are exaggerated.

    CNN) -- King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has intervened to help a man who has become one of the heaviest people in the world.The king ordered Khalid bin Mohsen Shaari, who weighs 1,345 pounds (610kg) and is unable to move by himself, be transferred from the Southern border province of Jazan to the country's capital Riyadh to undergo treatment.Read more: Dubai unveils golden reason to lose weightAccording to Guinness World Records, the record weight for a living person is held by Manuel Uribe from Mexico, who weighed 1,235 pounds (560kg) in 2006. After making a television appeal for help, his weight in March 2012 had fallen to 980 pounds (444.6 kg.)[​IMG]Khalid bin Mohsen Shaari weighs 1,345 pounds (610kg) and is unable to move by himself.

    According to the official spokesman for Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health, Shaari was due to arrive in Riyadh either later Monday or on Tuesday. Pictures showed a fork-lift truck lifting him in is bed. The spokesman said Shaari is aged between 18 and 20.He will be treated at the King Fahd Medical City, and undergo a series of dietary and physical programs in order to help him lose weight, the spokesman said. Although surgery is not scheduled at the moment, the Ministry of Health says it has not been ruled out. Special beds and trolleys have been made for him.

    If it's not bullshit, I'll never understand the point of saving people like this. Let natural selection do its job.

    no. all they can do is lay in bed. They also need an enabler to serve them the massive portions it takes to maintain their debilitating weight- and to clean up their waste

    I'm impressed the bed is still working.

    As a helpful eye-opener they should probably design double-beds to collapse at a reasonable weight (say 1000lbs). After that point you're sleeping on the floor fatty.

    We had a guy come into St Luke Hospital in New Bedford MA, on the floor of the ambulance with the gurney removed because it couldn't support him. They ended up having maint. come up and chain 2 gurneys together to get him out of it. He weighed in at 800 and something. Another guy came in the back of a pickup bed too at Norwood Hospital.

    There must be something going on like Munchhausen by proxy with those enablers. Being the "caretaker" of a bedridden blob who gets fatter and fatter. It must be some psychological thing where you feed off of the attention or the pity. Creepy shit.

    This is self-correcting if you quit paying people to stay home and eat.

    I don't understand how the body can maintain blood-flow to all that mass, seems like flesh should be rotting at the extremities.

    Yes, I'm sure he gets up and goes to work every day to provide for himself. He probably is a house painter.

    You tell me, genius, how, if someone is not providing him money, goods, and time, did he get that heavy?

    Bringing someone a pallet of groceries every week is paying them to sit home.

    Paying their rent for them is paying them to sit home.

    Providing them with free goods and services is paying them to sit home.

    Charity should be for the deserving. The kid born with flippers instead of arms. The blind man. The person whose genetics gave them heart attacks before age 30. You think they did this guy any favors shoveling food into him?

    Get it now?

    You are what is known as a political ZEALOT. You can't see the world excpet through your pathetic simplistic Democrat vs. Republican paradigm. All your type are losers as far as I'm concerned. I usually don't vote for these criminals. But you go fight the power, now.
