New Delhi: Dominique Lanoise is more than 310 kgs. Her weight is attributed to the fat inside her body and not the actual flesh, according to the doctors. Lanoise, a mother of six, is restricted to her home due her massive size.
Even during the Haiti earthquake, she could not be evacuated as airlines refused to carry her because of her heavy weight.
The woman cannot undergo surgery to treat her excessive obesity as surgeons fear the fat may cause a blood clot in her body. The blood clot could go up to the lungs, which would cause an instantaneous death, revealed surgeons.
However, Lanoise was not always that obese, she was a skinny girl before she gave birth to her first child at the age of 16.
