Obese UK woman cut out of house
Sat, 26 May 2012 3:11p.m.
Emergency workers who needed to take an obese teenager from her home to a hospital in Wales had to break through a wall of the residence to get her out and into an ambulance, officials said Friday.
The rescue on the second floor of the small house on Thursday used scaffolding as a ramp to lower Georgia Davis to the ground level, the local Rhondda Cynon Taf council said.
The 19-year-old remained hospitalised Friday and her medical condition was not released.
Neighbours said her weight had risen as high as 380kg (835lbs).
The UK has one of Europe's fattest populations: more than 60 percent of adults and one third of children aged 10-11 are overweight or obese, roughly similar to US statistics.
