BELLAIRE, Ohio – Have you eaten lunch yet? A morbidly obese man in Ohio had to be removed from his home after his skin had become attached to the fabric of the chair he’d been sitting in for the last two years.

How did he eat? Where did he go to the bathroom? All questions I asked when I was first told the story, and now I have the answers that I will gleefully relay to you in hopes of ruining your lunch hour.

Surprisingly, the 43-year-old man lived with his girlfriend who supplied him with food. That’s the answer to the first question. The fact that he was found sitting in his own feces and urine answers the second. Maggots were also present, happily feasting on the man’s soup as well as his bedsores.

His girlfriend and another man called police after they found him unresponsive on Sunday. One officer said it was the worst thing he ever responded to, the worst part being the smell. One officer threw away his uniform after it was soiled by the man’s filth while cutting him out of the chair.

The landlord, who says she is being attacked online, said the man used to be an active person, but over the last two years he had always been in the chair with a blanket covering him. But there really isn’t anyone at fault here. He’s an adult and from all reports, he was not being held captive. He chose to live this way and at 43-years-old there are no laws preventing him from doing so.

“This is a living condition issue, that is unfortunately a matter of personal choice. It didn’t affect a child, it didn’t affect a senior citizen. It’s a gray area. The kind of case that falls between the cracks.”

A hole had to be cut into the house so that emergency crews could get him out and to the hospital where he is currently clinging to life died.

    what exactly do you mean when you say “morbidly” obese?

    Ugh! We had baked potato bar in the cafeteria today dammit! Thanks for ruining it for me :(

    This reminds me of a case a few years ago where a woman’s skin was grafted to a couch she always laid on. They had to take her with the couch to the hospital. It baffles me how someone can let themselves or a loved one succumb to such poor condition, and how one could become so obese. You’d think when they’d have to squeeze through the door sideways that maybe it was time to lose weight.

    I’m so used to hearing stories like this I ate my pizza sub while reading the story. Now that I’m feeling too fat I think I’m going to go throw up so I don’t end up sitting in a chair for the next two years.

    Well seriously – if someone can’t get out of the chair, why bring him food? It’s not he could chase you and beat you up for withholding a sub!

  • Over The Rainbow

    This is fucking horrible! It does explain one thing though. The reason you see so many fat people in lawn chairs, is they are attached to them. See, I never would have figured that out if it wasn’t for these disgustingly awesome DD articles. Thanks, Morbid, for the appetizing article.

    jesus christ if you want someone to blame, blame the two responsible for the whole thing. first and foremost the man who chose this lifestyle and if that’s not good enough for you, tack some blame to that girlfriend.

    but now that he’s dead, i wonder if she could some how face manslaughter charges.

    It was a personal choice, and God help us all if we start facing charges for the way that the other people in our homes choose to live.

    But damn if I don’t want to take those two able-bodied adults and work them over with an aluminum bat. They could have at least rolled his ass out of the chair every now and then.

    He probably developed chronic pain or a leg or back injury that made it “too painful” to move. Even on my worst days (I have a couple of chronic pain disorders), I would rather move around and do what I can to reduce my weight than wallow in my own feces and risk maggots, pressure ulcers, and/or amputations.

    Interestingly, If you go to the link that Cindy McClure posted that says this guy died, it also calls him “morbidly obese”. Must be that he was so fat, it was morbid just to look at him.

    And while I do feel sorry for the landlady, how in the HELL did she not notice the stench of the man rotting to death? Anything that rots has a pretty distinctive smell. Did she have anosmia, was she a heavy smoker, or did she just not care as long as she got the rent on time each month and didn’t get any complaints from the police or their neighbors?

    Morbidly obese people don’t really “chose their lifestyle” any more than OCD people do. As more research is done, it’s becoming increasingly clear that these people are compelled to eat for genetic reasons.

    As for the girlfriend, it’s a classic case of co-dependence, just like a girlfriend who knows their boyfriend is slowly killing himself with drug use but will continue to give him money and rides (we see those people every week on Intervention, don’t we?).

    Most people who end up like this actually do *choose* to stay on the bed or in the chair because they don’t want to bother getting up again (and they are NOT as morbidly obese when they start out in the bed/chair as they are when they are found). And once the choice is made to lie/sit there like a lump on a log, it’s the CHOICE of other people to facilitate their spiral downwards by feeding their sad/lazy neediness. If these people didn’t have co-dependents facilitating the growth of these peoples’ fat, they might actually HAVE to get the fuck up and make their own damned sandwiches or starve.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-House/1011555524 John House

    Okay, after reading the article and the comments…I just have to say how sad.

    It must take a whole lot of sadness and depression to just *give up* like that. Obviously people like this have something fucked up going on in their heads; after all, this guy actually had a girlfriend who stuck around. But he wasn’t happy. He just fucking sat down and gave up on life. He needed intense psychotherapy/to be hospitalized, not to be fed to death while stewing in his own shit. His girlfriend probably thinks she cared about him, but she didn’t care THAT much if she was o.k. with letting him shit and piss himself and develop bedsores. What kind of “love” is that? And how can you live like that yourself? I think all three living in that house have mental problems.

    Tragic.

    This was a very sick household. The girlfriend, an enabler, couldn’t stop supplying the food and putting up with the filth. The boyfriend who gave up and resolved himself to a very, very limited life.

    I hope the girlfriend gets counseling. At least she might have a second chance in her future.

    I work with a girl ( well she’s 40ish) very attractive, well put together- hair,nails, clothes who has got to be almost as wide as she is tall. She is such a pretty girl and takes care of herself in a diva like way. I’m more of the tomboy type myself so i am envious of her fashion sense.
    We eat lunch together everyday, she eats no more than me usually less (I’m referred to at work as the human garbage disposal) I’m small but I have a very active lifestyle.
    I think with the obese there really is a medical condition involved besides just a lack of self control.
    Perhaps, Body dysmorphic order plays a part in their obesity. They just don’t see the damage done to their bodies at some point they just give up and accept a standard of living that makes most of us cringe, not unlike other addicts we have seen here on DD.
    The fact that this man had someone play into his delusion is just pathetic.

    I recall an episode of Geraldo Rivera back in the late 80’s/early 90’s (?) that was about a morbidly obese man who needed to be cut out of his home and brought to a hospital by a tow truck or something similar for a weight loss attempt.

    Probably most of the people who watched that then, double that or more for how many would youtube this guy being removed from a chair.

    Maybe it was just a really comfortable chair…

  • Parrot Toes

    Sylvanus “Hambone” Smith (1941 – 1997?) of Tifton, GA; 6 ft 2 1/2 in, aprox. 1000 lbs[…..] At his peak, he had a 103-in hip girth and 70-in thighs. He worked as a chef until his increasing weight left him confined to bed, then ran a pawnshop out of his home. Smith underwent a stomach-stapling operation in 1981 (at 602 lbs), served as a spokesman for Dick Gregory’s Bahamian Diet in 1987 (at 730 lbs), and was attempting yet another drastic weight loss program, sponsored by Geraldo Rivera, at the time of his death.[…..]

    This is the guy I was mentioning.

  • Parrot Toes

    I know you said that you don’t really want the answers to your questions, but you’re getting them any way. :P

    He was most likely naked under the blanket the whole time as morbidly obese people have a hard time finding clothes that fit. Especially since you figure he was gaining more weight during those two years of staying in one chair.

    As for the fusing, it’s not so much that the skin and the material of the chair become one. The guys skin would surround the fabric and form to it and surround it. Imagine silly putty sitting for an extended period of time on a cracker. Gravity and the nature of the putty would cause it to sink into grooves and flatten and spread out as much as possible. Eventually, that putty has worked it’s way into every hole, groove and crevice of that cracker, as well as surrounding the entire thing. That’s what this guys body did with the chair. I almost impress myself that I know this.

    How on earth did the girlfriend and the other guy in the house stand the stench?! It must have been horrible!! All the “waste” and then infections and maggots!? You gotta be some sick puppies to leave this so long. I don’t doubt the man had some mental “issues”.

    There was another story a couple years back, about a woman who refused to leave her toilet and sat on it until her butt grew around it, fusing her to the toilet. Her boyfriend said she just started refusing to leave the bathroom so he brought her food and clothes. They say this went on for two years, and finally she just sat on that toilet and wouldn’t leave it. I always wondered how innocent the boyfriend was in all of this.

    Also reminds me of the woman who was stuck to her boyfriend’s toilet seat for two years. The skin actually grew around the seat! I wonder where he went to the bathroom…1.5 bath in the house?

    Imagine the matting of his leg hair and the ball funk. Nope. Not hungry anymore.

    They may be compelled to eat by one thing or another but are they compelled to sit around and not do anything so they can just grow fatter and fatter? It is a lifestyle choice.

    Don’t be ridiculous. That’s like saying, “Agoraphobics might be scared to death of the public, but must they refuse to leave the house? It’s a lifestyle choice.”

    Some conditions automatically result in certain consequences. Now, mind you, I’m not talking about the “technical” morbidly obese person who, as someone else pointed out, is a mere 100lbs overweight. In most cases, yeah, that’s poor eating choices combined with inactivity, but the vast majority of people that size don’t continue to balloon. No, I’m talking about those who get into the 500-1000lb range. In these extreme cases, the individual is compelled to eat such large amounts, they couldn’t work it all off in a day if they were Michael Phelps. And, as the days go by, the activity becomes more and more difficult until they’re no longer capable.

    There’s a gal in my city who seems to walk everywhere she goes. I always see her walking to work and back, to the store and back, etc. She probably gets much more exercise in than the average American, yet she’s probably 400lbs and gaining. If I had to guess, I’d say she’s taking in even more calories than she burns, even if she’s burning thousands of calories a day. This means that, despite the fact that she’s pretty active, she’s still gaining, and there will come a day when her weight will disable her.

    People like this don’t choose to eat huge quantities anymore than a nail bitter chooses to bite their nails. They often report eating without even noticing until they get close to the end of whatever they’ve been eating. And it snowballs because their standards get so outta whack. If they’re used to eating three or four burgers at a sitting and they cut down to one or two, in their mind, that’s a significant, 50% decrease. If any of us cut our caloric intake by 50%, we’d be pretty proud of ourselves and would lose weight pretty quick. But because they’ve been eating so much, even such a significant decrease is still not enough.

    Food becomes a lethal weapon if there is enough of it?

  • http://infowars.com Domino

    oh. i in no way think this man died because of too much food.

    what a life though. sit your fat ass around stuffing your mouth, having ample food supply to do so, and in the end you’ll have all the tards come take a stand on your behalf to say it’s not your fault, that it’s a disease, genetic, compulsion, not your choice, you’re mentally ill and ultimately that it’s just a sad sad story….. ha.

    i don’t feel one bit sorry for this guy or the gf – but i do wonder and the only reason i’d like to see her face charges is because what she allowed was wrong, and she ultimately participated in his death. not necessarily because i want “justice” for him…. but a personality like that needs to be straightened the fuck out.. those are the same types that sit by in idle while kids get raped and the elderly get beat… it’s a dangerous personality.

    poor obese guy- the maggots were probably helping him to ward off infection…they eat the dead skin off wounds/bedsores and assist with healing. Getting off the chair and going to the hospital killed him- should have stayed there.

    Sounds like it was Diogenes Syndrome in this guy’s case. Thanks for the links.

    I wonder what his source of income was.

    I couldn’t. My imagination has already had me gagging and shivering. Real life would just be too much.

  • Jessie

    I just can’t seem to wrap my head around the idea that he had a girlfriend for so long and if he was in this chair for two years what kind of relationship could they possibly have had. I mean how could she have done nothing to help him but everything to help him continue hurting himself. I mean did she stay overnight? or just put on a mask( for the smell) everytime she took him food? Sorry but call it what you want, I am completly dumbfounded on how to understand this.

  • MISSanthropic

    It bothers me that after reading this, I was mostly just thinking about how I want to see what the girlfriend looks like.

    This answer makes the most sense. I’m sure his “girlfriend” was pretty abusive. She basically kept him alive at the bare minimum to collect money. She’d probably just come in to feed him. That’s insane.

    Funk? No, two years is beyond funk and we’re talking some serious rotting cheese in between all of those awesome nooks n’ crannies.

    Are you sure this is not made up ???

    I don’t understand the mindset of anyone who seemingly chooses to sit in his/her own feces and urine, to the point of not being able to move, who does not at some point, ask for some help. How could this man’s girlfriend (who reportedly is the one who fed him), not have known something was ermmm a bit wrong? If nothing else, she could have called for help on his behalf if it’s true that he was fully capable of doing so and didn’t.

    Nooooo don’t go into the light!!

    I have a dear friend I’ve known since high school ( I beat up a couple people who were bullying her) From her first day of school she was teased and bullied for being the chubby girl. Her abusive mother half starved her. She’d give her daughter toast and she had to sit and watch the rest of the family wolf down potroast. She was so happy in her early years with her husband and three kids. But as the years went on she gradually got heavier and heavier, but she still held down a good job . Then she had a heart attack and couldn’t work. From there on it was worse. And every time she decided to get out of the house more, total strangers would stare at her like she was some disgusting disease and make horrible comments. I’m sure nobody but her family and close friends know how much that hurts her. She does some part time work at night now, with her hubby helping her. Sometimes she is brave and goes into a 711 when they stop to get gas. Otherwise the thought of going anywhere public, in daylight, sends her full flinged anxiety attacks. I’ve know her for many years, she’s sweet, generous, caring and has a wonderful sense of humor. She doesn’t eat huge amounts of food, eats a lot of vegetables, eats no sugar.

    I don’t know what causes obesity but sounds like this one just gave up hope and was not living, just survingly in the shell of a body.

    I still don’t understand how SO many, many people who are just disgusting in hygiene doing drugs, abusive can get girlfriends. For ridiculously, actual hot girlfriends. It is too common.

  • Jack2

    I first thought this was an actual joke…I am just shocked that it is not. *Please, waiting for the punchline?*
