This is disgusting, yet still sad. R.I.P.
A morbidly obese Ohio man who had to be cut loose from a chair he had not left for two years has died, officials said.
The 43-year-old man had been hospitalized since Sunday after his roommates called 911 when they found him unconscious in the living room chair.
Bellaire police had to cut the man free after finding that his skin had fused to the chair’s fabric.
They said he sat in his own waste and was covered in maggots.
“The chair was very filthy, a lot of odor to it. Going in the house, the house was not clean,” public health officer Jim Chase told WTRF-TV.
“The living room where the man lived in his chair was very filthy, very deplorable. It’s unbelievable that somebody lives in conditions like that.”
Authorities were forced to cut a hole in the wall of the man’s house to remove him to the hospital.
The man – whose name was not released – lived with a roommate and a girlfriend who prepared him food since he was unable to get up.
So this guy was living with TWO other people and no one said “enough is enough”?? A truly sad state of affairs.
