Firemen had to help send a 250kg man who has been living alone in a shack in Pokok Mangga, Melaka, to hospital, reported Harian Metro.

During the 45-minute effort on Wednesday, 10 personnel from the fire station in Jalan Kubu had to lift Ong Chuen Hock, 43, from his bed onto a piece of canvas before transporting him in a lorry to Hospital Melaka for treatment.

Fire chief Deputy Commissioner Kamarulzaman Mohd Sin said this was the second time his personnel had to send Ong to the hospital. The first was over a year ago.

He also had to depend on his friends to bring him food daily.
