Britain’s fattest woman dies in hospital

London, July 26(ANI): Britain’s fattest woman at 45st has
died after secretly eating family buckets of chicken, fish and chips in

Sharon Mevsimler, 40, begged her family to sneak take-aways
into the Chelmsford hospital where she was on a strict diet.

Even horrified witnesses saw relatives smuggling fast food
to the gorging mum of four.

She was so huge that a trolley collapsed as she was wheeled
to the mortuary.

“She simply would not stop eating. She obviously had a
serious underlying problem with food, but did nothing to help herself,” the Sun
quoted a National Health Service (NHS) source as saying.

“Those who came to visit her in hospital did her no
favours,” said the source.

“We saw them bringing in various fatty foods like fish
and chips and huge portions of fried chicken when she should not have been
eating these things.

“It was infuriating to see her literally eating herself
to death,” the NHS source added.

Sharon’s bulk put so much strain on her lungs she needed an
oxygen tank to breathe.

She was repeatedly warned she was eating herself to death.

But she refused to stop bingeing - despite undergoing a
30,000 pounds op on the NHS earlier this year to have a gastric band fitted. It
was meant to have curbed her gargantuan appetite.

A source confirmed: “She died on Saturday. Because of
her weight, hospital staff had to be very careful how she was moved.”

NHS worker said: “No one could believe how big Sharon
was. She was so fat she could not walk.” (ANI)
