The world’s former heaviest woman, Eman Ahmed Abdul Atti, has reportedly died in the early hours on Monday, 25, 2017.
According to UAE newspaper Khaleej Times, Eman passed away at the Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi.
The 37-year old Egyptian, who initially weighed 500kg, was seen dancing in her bed last month after it was reported she was making progress.
Eman suffered complications which included heart disease and kidney dysfunction during her weight loss treatment while in India earlier this year.
She left Mumbai close to 300kg lighter after undergoing treatment.
According to a statement from the hospital, since Eman reached Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi from Mumbai’s Saifee Hospital, a team of more than 20 healthcare professionals have put in a treatment plan divided into three stages.
“The management of Burjeel Hospital is deeply saddened by the death of Eman Abdul Atti, the heaviest woman in the world.
“Eman died on Monday, September 25, 2017 at 4:35am due to an intestinal shock and kidney failure. She was supervised by a team of more than 20 doctors from different disciplines who had successfully improved her health since she arrived in the UAE.
“She breathed her last early in the morning. We offer our prayers and sincere condolences to the family of the deceased.”
