    Removing him from his current environment is prolly gonna be a huge help. He wasn't getting the food by himself after all. Some fucker kept bringing food to him,and they are equally responsible for this,and prolly just as messed up as him.

    Link with video of the man being transported:

    It's a pretty full on logistical operation getting him out of his house and into the aircraft (I know in Queensland there have been instances of using a Defence Force Hercules to transport bariatric patients as most of our dedicated air transport is only capable of transporting patients up to 150kg).

    Scipio - I stopped feeling pity in this type of situation a long time ago. Because of my job I now just see this as a logistical nightmare. Most of the equipment available on the market to cater to these patients caps out at around 450kg. The major problem is that the equipment is designed to withstand a certain weight and doesn't really cater to the individual's dimensions a lot of the time.

    KiwiPhil - certainly in the case of the gentleman who stayed in our hospital there was someone feeding him who lived in the bridge. He has actually been removed from that environment and is doing pretty well last I heard. The guy who was feeding him however is probably going to end up in the same scenario in the not to distant future as the conversation I had indicated he was quite large.

    In unrelated news, I don't feel like bacon for breakfast anymore.

    I think that would be a really bad idea. Japanese whalers would get him in no time.

    With sea levels rising already that can't be a good idea. Think about your brothers in New Zealand for gods sake, it might be enough to sink the whole damn kaboodle.

    If that guy lost all that weight it would be like walking around in a human sleeping bag. All the extra skin! He would be able to turn around without moving his skin. Crazy!
