Manuel Uribe, known as 'Meme,' once certified by the Guinness World Record as the heaviest man alive, has died.
His record peak weight was 1,230 pounds (560 kilograms) in 2006.
Uribe, 48, had been admitted to a hospital in his natal Nuevo Leon a few days ago with symptoms of cardiac arrythmia and other health complications, according to El Universal newspaper.
The man had not been able to get out of bed since at least 12 years and had to be taken to the hospital with a crane by emergency and civil defense workers. He relied on his mother and friends to feed and clean him.
