Heaviest woman lifted by crane, lands Mumbai for treatment


Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, said to be the heaviest woman in the world, landed at Mumbai's global Terminal 2 airport at 3.05 a.m. on Saturday. Indian Embassy officials in Cairo had earlier denied Eman's request for a travel visa because she could not travel to the Embassy.

Now she weighs 500 kg and can't even leave her bed. She has also already suffered a stroke that left her right arm and leg paralyzed, she does not speak coherently and is at high risk of pulmonary embolism, as reported by The Times of India.

Her bed being lifted by crane at the hospital.

Ahmed, who has not moved out of her house due to her heavy weight from past several years, will be under observation for a month and later would undergo surgery. Eman's treatment was facilitated with the help of India's external affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who made sure the world's heaviest woman was granted a visa for her treatment after a petition was filed by a doctor from Saifee Hospital.

She arrived in Mumbai and was taken to Mumbai's Saifee Hospital upon arrival, the statement said.

While the truck looked feeble to carry Ms. Ahmed and six other people, including her sister Shaima, and Dr. Lakdawala, the 110-minute journey went on smoothly despite the bumpy Western Express Highway. The 36-year-old, who moved out of her house after 25 years, has been under the care of Mumbai-based bariatric surgeon Muffazal Lakdawala and his team of doctors for over three months now.

She asked all Egyptians to pray for her sister's recovery. The team was constantly monitoring her blood pressure and heart conditions and she was also administered blood thinners to sustain her through the flight. "Keeping in mind the complexities of the case, before any surgical intervention, she will need a series of medical tests to determine the next course of action", Lakdawala said. She is being transported by a fully equipped truck, which will be followed by an ambulance and a police escort to Saifee Hospital where a special room has been created for her.

Dr. Muzaffal Lakdawala said: "We had taken all the precautions possible to ensure that Eman's journey to India is accomplished without incident".

The surgery will be performed free of charge and Eman's family will not have to pay for her post-surgery recovery too.
