Egyptian once known as 'world's heaviest woman' dies in UAE
Doctors say an Egyptian once known as "the world's heaviest woman" has died in a hospital in the United Arab Emirates. She was 37.
Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi said that Eman Abdul Atti died at 4:35 a.m. on Monday.
Doctors described her death as being due to complications from her weight, including heart disease and kidney dysfunction.
The hospital said: "Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family."
At one point, Abdul Atti reportedly weighed around 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds). Doctors blamed her weight on a thyroid condition.
Abdul Atti arrived in the UAE in May, receiving care from a team of 20 doctors at Burjeel Hospital. She earlier received medical treatment in India and underwent surgery that saw her lose some 300 kilograms (660 pounds).
