London, Sep 07 (ANI): A 30-stone British factory worker has given up working - in case he falls on his colleagues and crushes them.
Tubby Barry Fowers had to climb on platforms despite being prone to blackouts.
But he was considered a danger to himself and others and took an offer of redundancy at his job making power equipment.
Barry, 51, also has diabetes, angina and other heart problems.
"I had to climb on to platforms about three feet off the floor to install parts.
They were worried I might pass out through my diabetes. They said my weight was a threat in case I fell off and landed on someone," the Sun quoted Barry as saying. (ANI)
