Obese man in Mumbai hauls safely from his apartment after four years

By Nairita Das

Mumbai, Aug 30 (ANI): An obese man, weighing 190 kilograms, was hauled safely from his multi-storey apartment here recently.

ifty-three year old Nazeer Ahmed Abdul Rehman had not been out of his apartment for four years due to his weight and stiffened limbs.

Six fire-fighting troopers participated in the rescue operation to get Rehman safely out from his apartment.

Rehman has blamed his lifestyle and eating habits for the obesity.

"The habit of eating has brought me to this condition. I was eating junk food and had a bad lifestyle. I used to sleep late and get up early. I had sleeping disorders, stress, which lead to an increase in the uric acid in my body and it stiffened my joints," said Rehman.

"I used work at Lagoon restaurant, after working there for five years I reached a situation when I was unable to walk. Since the last five years, I have been facing a lot of problems. But my wife and children have stood by me," he added.

Rehman will go through a stomach surgery, which will help him reduce his weight.

"I can't give up this habit of eating. Only if the size of my stomach is reduced, then may be it can stop. Therefore, this therapy of weight loss surgery is best for me. All the other.... like liposuction, etc., are not very useful because I will regain weight. I am incapable of reducing my diet. I tried cutting down on my diet but I gave up in 1-2 and went back to the same position," said Rehman. By Sanjeev Shukla (ANI)
