BERLIN (Reuters) - A man weighing 300 kg (660 lb) needed 16 firemen, a crane and a truck to reach a hospital in the German city of Stuttgart, according to the fire department.
The man, too ill to move himself, was too large to be carried down the stairs from his first-floor apartment. Instead firemen took him to the window to be lowered by crane onto a hospital bed fastened on the roof of a fire truck on Saturday.
"Of course the man was surrounded by a canvas cover to shield him from public view during the ride," said Wilfried Hachtel of the Stuttgart fire department.
Hachtel declined to comment on what the man's illness was.
