World's Fattest Man Goes On Outing

A 310kg man once considered the world’s fattest person left his home for the first time in five months at the weekend with the aid of a forklift and a platform truck.

Manuel Uribe travelled to the shore of a lake in northern Mexico without ever leaving his specially designed bed. A forklift hoisted the bed onto the truck, which then hauled him to the lake, where he snacked on fish and vegetables and joked with a local boat operator.

Looking at the boatman’s small craft, Uribe joked, “Too bad I can’t get on it — it would sink.”

Once considered the world’s fattest man when his weight hit over half a tonne, more than two years of steady dieting had helped Uribe drop to about 310kg in June — 250kg less than his former Guinness record weight of 560kg.
