'Britain's fattest teen' Georgia Davis lifted out of home by crane and taken to hospital

Georgia Davis, the young woman once dubbed Britain's fattest teenager, had to be lifted out of her home by crane and taken to hospital yesterday (Weds).

Firemen and paramedics worked for seven hours to remove a set of French doors before winching Georgia, 22, out of her ground floor flat in Aberdare, South Wales.

The road was closed and crowds of neighbours watched as Georgia, believed to currently weigh between 55 and 60 stone, was finally brought out covered in a blanket.

A spokeswoman for Cwm Taf University Health Board said: "We can confirm that the fire service was brought in earlier today to assist us with access to a property in order to safely transport a patient into hospital.

"We do not comment on individual patients."

It's the second time emergency services have been called in to help transport Georgia to hospital, following a similar exercise three years ago that cost taxpayers £100,000.

That time an army of 50 firemen, engineers and medics had to cut a 10ft by 10ft hole in the side of her parents' home in Merthyr Tydfil so they could lift her out in a hoist and take her to intensive care.

Georgia, then aged 19 and weighing 63 stone, had been a virtual prisoner in her bedroom after succumbing to a serious food addiction that has plagued her since childhood - and risked death by letting herself balloon to a third of a ton.

A year later Georgia had shed 18 stone after vowing to eat healthily. But months later she was back up to 46 stone and unable to get out of her armchair.

Georgia first hit the headlines on 2007 when she weighted 33st at the age of 15.

She lost around 15 stone after going to a children's fat camp in the US - but it did not last and she had topped 40 stone by the age of 17.
