    Eight-hundred pound woman is rescued from her NYC apartment with a massive net:(:(:(:(
    • New York City firefighters got the woman out of her second-floor apartment
    • FDNY said a 'larger patient' was helped and witnesses said she was 800lb
    • Hoisted her down to ambulance after figuring she wouldn't fit through door
    • The sick woman was taken to St Luke's Hospital for treatment on Friday

    An obese woman in need of medical attention was rescued from her second-story apartment in East Harlem by New York City firefighters who had a net that could hold her nearly 800lb body.

    City paramedics arrived at the woman's apartment on 111th Street around 1.15pm and quickly realized that she was too large to fit through the front door of the dwelling.

    The emergency workers were able to treat the woman but they called in the firefighters so she could be removed from the apartment and taken to St Luke's Hospital.

    They got her down from her second-story apartment in East Harlem using a massive, yellow net

    The large :eek:patient was removed from 1330 5th avenue between west 111th and west 112th streets in New York


    The FDNY workers performed a 'high angle operation' in order to secure the 'larger patient' and take her from the building safely after removing a window, the New York Daily News reported.

    A large net was placed around her body and she was lowered into an ambulance below.

    Witnesses who saw the massive rescue operation estimated the woman's weight to be 800lb.

    Emergency services tape sealed off the area as the woman was removed from her New York home

    Whats gets me is this woman can't move. These relatives keep stuffing her face. Perfect time for these people to get her healthy…but instead keep feeding her pizzas and fried chicken..

    I wonder how long it took to do this? Apparently whatever attention she needed could not have been brought to her :dontknow:

    Hold it! Hold it! You're missing something!

    I was just going to say that AGAIN, it was a HIGH ANGLE OPERATION that rescued me NOT A LOW ONE.

    If that's not damn embarrassing enough to get her to lose weight, nothing will.

    I don't understand getting to 800 lbs... how do you not start freaking out at say, 250 lbs?

    Sadly, I think scenes like this will get more commonplace. :confused:

    This has got to go far and away beyond a weight problem.
    Much like hoarders are collectors gone mad, this woman is an overeater gone mad.

    It's really kinda sad, I hope she gets some real help now that she's out of the hole she literally ate herself into.

    Sad, but true. And just wait until the anti-fat shaming feminazis start talking about how these women are beautiful and society owes them the crane accessible buildings.
