Mexican Man, Once World's Heaviest, Dies at 48

This is so sad. He had married his nurse a couple of years after the original broadcast of his story.

By PORFIRIO IBARRA of Associated Press

MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — A Mexican man once listed as the world's heaviest human being, died Monday at the age of 48.

Manuel Uribe had slimmed down to about 867 pounds, (394 kilograms), well below his then-record peak weight of 1,230 pounds, (560 kilograms), which was certified in 2006 as a Guinness World Record.

Uribe's death was confirmed by an official of the health department of Nuevo Leon state, where the city of Monterrey is located.

Uribe had been confined to his bed in Monterrey for years, unable to walk on his own.

The official, who was not authorized to be quoted by name, said Uribe had been taken to the hospital on May 2 because of an abnormal heartbeat.

He had to be taken to the hospital with a crane by emergency and civil defense workers.

Doctors have not yet certified the cause of death. In addition to the cardiac condition, Uribe was also believed to have suffered from liver problems.

Uribe married Claudia Solis in 2008, and the wedding was one of the few times he left his home in recent years.

Uribe was a chubby kid, weighing more than 250 pounds, (115 kilograms), as an adolescent. Starting in 1992, he said, his weight began ballooning further.

Since the summer of 2002, Uribe had been bedridden, relying on his mother and friends to feed and clean him.

In this June 9, 2008 file photo, Manuel "Meme" Uribe, 42, shows how he exercises from his bed during an interview in Monterrey, Mexico. Uribe, once listed as the world's heaviest human being, has died at the age of 48. His death was confirmed Monday, May 26, 2014, by an official of the health department of Nuevo Leon state in Mexico. Doctors have not yet certified the cause of death. (AP Photo/Monica Rueda, File)

115kg is NOT chubby. Its fucking big when its muscle but if its fat? That is twice the size of it at least. What a fat, lazy fuck.

And that woman is attention whoring. Typical

It is way more complicated than a case of extreme laziness. The guy obviously had a glandular issue ( common sense)

And I don't know about you but being married to a really fat guy isn't exactly the hottest ticket in town.

You MUST be kidding

Chubby? Are you fucking kidding me? He weighed over double as a kid than what I do now and I'm 23 and 5'8.

A chubby kid is a major fucking understatement.

Sad.

It may be that he couldn't have really been able to help himself.

I saw him in one documentary eating his dinner and it appeared to be about what I eat in a day. And I eat a lot. There's nothing glandular about that. If Calories going in one's cakehole exceed the number of Calories burned by the body, fatness will ensue.
