Fattest Man in the World Dies From Heart Attack

38 year old Andres Moreno from Ciudad Obregon in Sonora Mexico, known as the fattest man in the world who weighs about 980lbs suffered a heart attack and died while being rushed to the hospital.
Football Superstar, Christiano Ronaldo sent him a signed Real Madrid shirt to encourage him to lose weight before he did a weight loss surgery. Publicist. Carmen Palacios said Moreno weighed 700lbs at the time of his death and they needed a team of seven staff to put him on the reinforced stretcher before taking him to the hospital.
Moreno was overwhelmed when he received the shirt. He said:”Sometimes you think that people live in another world way from the people, but that is not the case. I feel as if I had gotten a Christmas gift before Christmas.”
He went through the surgery even though he knew that it was risky. “I want to show them that no matter how large they are, there is still hope.” The operation involved removing about 70 percent of his stomach to re-route a lengthy portion of his small intestine in order to reduce meal quantities and the absorption of calories from food.
The heart attack which led to his death wasn’t his first, as he had suffered a couple of others before and he was already bedridden and suffering a number of serious illnesses.
Moreno who is a former police officer got dumped by his wife as his weight gain progressed. “I lost my wife who I lived with for three years because I was fat. I realized I was putting on more and more weight and getting bigger but it was like a snowball I couldn’t stop. Friends and family would visit me and when they went I was left alone crying and sad because of my situation and begging God to put me back on the right path.”

The Surgeon who performed his operation, Jose Anthonio Castaneda said ahead of it that he wouldn’t have lasted another five years without it. Moreno had plans to set up an organization to help other obese people keep in shape.
