The heaviest man dies - level 2
The heaviest man in the world has died. The Mexican man died at the age of 48. He weighed 394 kilos at the time of his death.
However, the man once weighed 560 kilograms. That is as much as a small small car. When he worked in the USA as a computer repairman, he ate only pizza and burgers. His diet changed to tacos after he moved back to Mexico.
The man suffered from liver problems and his heartbeat was abnormal. No coffin was big enough for the man’s body, so it had to be cremated.
Difficult words: abnormal (not normal), coffin (wooden box for a dead body), cremate (to burn a dead person’s body).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
