610kg man gets a lift

, August 20, 2013

Saudi Civil Defence members use a forklift to move Khaled Mohsen Shaeri, 20, from his house in the Saudi city of Jizan, and to be airlifted to the capital Riyadh for medical treatment, on August 19. Shaeri weighs approximately 610 kg (1345 lbs) and is suffering from severe obesity due to health problems that have resulted in a rapid increase in his weight over the past two years. He was flown to Riyadh on board a special plane, accompanied by a special medical team, and taken to the King Fahd Medical City (KFMC) for treatment on orders from King Abdullah.
