It was all until January 1993 that she was rushed to the hospital due to a persistent high fever and the worse part is that she requires the firefighter's help to get her to the hospital.

The firefighter definitely had troubles moving her from the start as they faced many challenges along the way including rolling her down the hill to transfer her into the ambulance. As she arrived at the hospital, her recorded body weight was 539kg making Carol the heaviest woman in the world at that time.

She was forced to go back and forth to the hospital several times for 2 years with the assist of the firefighters each time. Carol was successfully put on a diet that managed to reduce her body weight to around 315kg.

He slowly stops moving around and is more focused on his career as an electronic technician. His job requires him to only sit in one place making his body start to change. For the past 2 decades, his body weight has tremendously risen which also costs him his marriage.

As Manuel was unable to bear the pain of weighing a whopping 597kg at the time, he decided to go back to Mexico in 2006 and seek the media for help. His cry for help definitely paid off as many medical experts started to run a diet program specifically for him.

He managed to lose his weight to 230kg as well as find his second true love. Due to his weak condition, Manuel was forced to attend his marriage ceremony on a bed as the event took place and it was quite unfortunate that he was unable to dance with his wife.
