Heaviest Man in the World.

Manuel Uribe of Monterey, Mexico, is probably the heaviest person in the world. He probably weighs about 550 kg (1,200 pounds) - probably, because there just isn't a scale that can weigh him:

Manuel Uribe, bedridden for the past five years, cannot stand on his own and will need a special flight to take him from Monterrey, Mexico to Modena, where a surgical team has offered to perform an intestinal bypass free of charge.

"I can't walk. I'm can't leave my bed," the 40-year-old Uribe, who weighs the same as five baby elephants, said in a recent telephone interview.

Update 6/29/06: Manuel Uribe successfully lost 200 lb. on a high protein diet. Doctors are postponing plans for surgery, given that Manuel is responding so well to dieting. http://www.neatorama.com/2006/06/28/manuel-uribe-lost-200-lb-on-protein-diet/

My heart goes out to this man and is in my prayers. He is going through hell because of all people judging him.

May God be with you Manuel.
