610kg boy loses 490kg Weight in two years


A 17-year-old Saudi boy rated in 2013 as the heaviest man in the world has lost nearly 480 kg since he was airlifted out of his home confinement to hospital in 2013.

Khaled Al Shaeri was flown from his home in the Southern Jazan province to King Fahd Medical City in the capital Riyadh in August 2013 for treatment after his condition worsened due to a steady rise in his weight, which reached nearly 610 kg at that time.
