A half-ton man

The above referred website link offers some interesting facts about a man who weighs that of five baby elephants. It is very hard to believe that this half ton man may not often be rolled to his back, since his lungs are unable to breathe because of the heavy compression that prevents contraction and expansion of his lungs. The link offers the video where one can see how this giant sized man is literally being crushed by his own weight. Medical experts recommend him to undergo the gastric bypass surgery that may help him with a new life. However the heaviest woman who has come down from 1200 to 300 pounds do not agree with the medical experts.
