Manuel Uribe, once the world's fattest man, left his home for the first time in five months today, thanks to a forklift and a flatbed truck:
Manuel Uribe traveled 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."
