Very heavy man - level 2
A big rescue operation had to be carried out in Saudi Arabia. A man, who weighs 1344 pounds/610 kilograms, had to be moved from his room.
He had been in his room for 2.5 years before the operation. He had not been able to leave the room. But now, the King of Saudi Arabia ordered him to get treatment and the fat patient was moved onboard a plane. The plane will take him to a hospital where he'll get the help that he needs.
Only one person has ever been heavier than this man. He was an American who died in 1983. He weighed an unbelievable 1386 pounds/629 kilograms.
Difficult words: carry out (do), treatment (medical care).
