Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah ordered Khalid bin Mohsen Shaari to be admitted to a hospital. It probably saved the young man’s life. Khalid, who is estimated to be in his late teens, weighed in at 1,345 pounds!He was ordered into the hospital last August and with treatment, he has lost more than 700 pounds and his health is steadily improving.

When he weighed 1,345 pounds, he was unable to move by himself and had to be taken out of his house on a forklift, he had not left his bed for three years.

Shaari’s health has improved. He has improved heart and lung function, reduced inflammation and improved muscle strength, including the ability to move his feet.

His spirits are good and his mother has stayed with him since he was admitted in the hospital last summer. See video of him being forklifted from his home.
