625 lbs weighing Miami Woman Dead

A Florida woman weighing 625 lbs died due to her massive weight. Dominique Lanoise, 40, lost her life on March 10, 2012. A mother of six was housebound for as many as 20 years and used sheets to wrap her body, as no clothes used to fit her.

For past two decades, her daughters were taking care of her. From feeding to bathing, all was done by her daughters. Dr Oscar Hernandez from the Southern Bariatric Center, Miami, said that her diet had increased to such a massive level that she was used to town eating.

Dr Jorge Rabaza, bariatric surgeon, who was also given charge of her life-saving surgery, said that he did have raised concerns about her weight and also affirmed that operation at this point of time would prove risky.

"There is a high mortality rate for morbidly obese patients, where they get blood clots in their legs and the blood clots go up to their lungs", explained Rabaza about the problems.

It was in 2010 when she first got media attention. She lived for three months in Haiti when earthquake occurred, as commercial airplanes were unable to carry her weight. A new TLC show is coming up, which will dictate her weight gain story in the form of documentary.
