Britain’s fattest man found dead
London, June 22: 33-year old Carl Thompson, the fattest man of Britain was dead in his flat, media reported on Monday.
Carl found dead just hours after ordering apple crumble and ice cream from his favourite takeaway on Sunday, The Daily Mail reported.
Emergency services used a small crane to carry his body out via an upstairs balcony and closing the road outside. It took several hours to remove his body from his home. Carl weighed 65 stone.
He had been housebound for more than a year after doctors warned he needed to lose 70 per cent of his body-weight to survive.
After the loss of his 54-year-old mother to brain cancer in 2012 his weight exploded, nearly doubling from 35 stone to his current size.
