World's Heaviest Woman, Eman Ahmed dies after removing 713 lbs

The woman, Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, once considered to be the world’s heaviest passed away Monday due to complications from her weight, including heart disease and kidney malfunction.

The 37-year-old in February, she was airlifted from her home in Egypt to India for the surgery, marking the first time she had left her bedroom in two decades due to her weight and a debilitating stroke she had suffered two years prior.

Abd El Aty underwent a successful laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery in March and dropped 713 lbs. after about two months in the hospital.

She then flew to Burjeel Hospital in the United Arab Emirates for rehabilitation, where she spoke for the first time in three years.

In July she was diagnosed with severe depression and was refusing to talk to doctors. Still, they hoped to begin additional liposuction treatment and remove excess skin and return her to Alexandria, Egypt sometime in the next year.

After her death Monday morning, Burjeel Hospital said in a press release, “Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family.”
