So many questions come to mind, not the least of which is: he had a girlfriend?
MySA.com: Mexico: "SAN NICOLAS DE LOS GARZA, Mexico — When you weigh 800 pounds, you need a forklift and a tow truck to go for a Sunday picnic.
Unfortunately for Monterrey's famous large man, Manuel Uribe, 42, his first such jaunt in five years was canceled by doctors after a freak accident en route to La Boca dam, a popular weekend destination near this northern Mexican city.
The sunshade on his specially reinforced bed, which was propped on a flatbed tow truck big enough for a bus, was knocked off by a low underpass, a steel beam narrowly missing Uribe's body.
Doctors checked his pulse, which was racing, and said his blood pressure fell.
'He can't recover that easily from a scare like that,' said Silvia Orozco, one of his doctors.
It was hard to tell who was the most disappointed.
Uribe was celebrating two years on a special diet, which is said to have shaved off some 400 pounds.
His girlfriend, Claudia Solís, was celebrating her 38th birthday."
