Overly obese man Noor Hassan passes away
The Sadiqabad resident was taken to Lahore in a military helicopter after Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa directed a special medical treatment for him.
Noor had successfully undergone a successful surgery at Shalimar Hospital. The doctors said that the patient will reduce 100 kg in first six months while it will take two years for him to become completely healthy.
However, he was shifted to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after his health deteriorated but he could not survive and left the world on Monday morning.
Noor Hassan, 55, is a taxi driver and resident of Sadiqabad city of Punjab who had appealed the Army Chief on social media to provide him medical assistance for getting rid of his obesity.
The 55-year-old man was taken out of his small house after breaking the main door and wall by the rescue officials. He was later transported to a football ground in Sadiqabad onto a mini truck where a helipad was fashioned for helicopter’s landing.
