Dozens of Rescuers Called In To Move 35 Stone Woman
Dozens of firemen and Red Cross workers took part in an operation to transport a woman weighing 35 stones (222 kg) from her home in Colombia's northern city of Cucuta to a local hospital.
The rescuers were forced to knock down two walls and one door, using saws and drills, to get 70-year-old Clementina Rios out of her home, in an operation that took over four hours to complete.
Lying on a stretcher, Rios was carefully lifted by forklift and placed on a truck which drove her to another vehicle that was to transport her to the hospital.
