View Full Version : **ROFL** Obese Woman Dragged from Home After her Death.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Marion County Coroner's Office has come under fire after it was revealed that an obese woman was dragged from her home and hauled away on a trailer in front of family members following her death.

Teresa Smith, 48, who weighed 750 pounds, died Tuesday in her apartment on Indianapolis' northeast side.

Officials at the scene told 6News' Jack Rinehart that the deputy coroner made the decision to call a towing service to remove the body from the home.

"We debated for quite a while about how we were going to get her out of there and so we finally decided, since we didn't have a van that was large enough to carry her, it was decided between (the police) department and the coroner's office to use (the truck)," said Detective Marcus Kennedy.

Smith's boyfriend and the couple's 13-year-old son, along with several neighbors, watched as Smith's body, still on her mattress, was dragged across the courtyard of the apartment complex, strapped down on the wrecker and covered with a piece of carpet.

"I think they should have handled it differently, putting her on a flatbed like they did. That was like putting a cow up there," said Smith's boyfriend, David Johnson.

Neighbors said they were also disturbed by the ordeal.

"What really got me is when they took her off onto the flatbed, they threw this dirty, dirty carpet on top of her, and I just thought that was so disrespectful," said a neighbor, who did not want to be identified. "I would have never let them throw that on my loved one."

Once on the truck, Smith's body was escorted by police downtown to the coroner's office.

Former Chief Deputy Coroner John Linehan said he was shocked and dismayed that appropriate steps weren't taken to remove the woman from her home.

He said that fire and medical personnel have equipment available for handling patients up to 1,000 pounds and that moving obese individuals is not all that rare of an occurrence.

"When they scoop up dead dogs off of the street they don't treat them that way," he said. "It's just not the way to treat a human being."

Chief Deputy Coroner Alfarena Ballew told Rinehart by phone Wednesday that a flatbed truck has been used in other occasions to move obese individuals. She said the office is now looking for a way to transport Smith's body from the morgue to the funeral home.

The Indiana State Coroner's Association said it has no specific recommendations to handle extremely obese people. The decision is left up to each county.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh my god. How humiliating. But also funny. This reminds me of the time when they used dynamite to get the whale off the beach.

All ROFLS aside. This is pretty fucked up. I wish stories like this were more prolific in the mainstream media. Maybe people would think about their weight a little bit more. Maybe people would stop being such huge fucking fatasses. (I'm LOOKING AT YOU CULLION)

I hope we all come away from this sexier and more fit people. I can't imagine what it's like to be one of you ugly fat people. How depressing. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go be beautiful and sexy.

So how exactly WERE they supposed to remove her? It's not as if they could of carried her and she would not of fit into an ambulance. Maybe they could of gone in with chainsaws, cut her up into smaller more manageable pieces and reassembled her at the morgue?

bring it on fatass!!

also, [email protected]"dirty carpet" usually if there is a morbidly obese person in the house, there is alot of filth to go with it. Stacks of pizza cartons, cat-hair/hairballs/vomit/overflowing litter tray, clogged and ruined toilet (think about it, or not!), dishes piled high in the sink etc.

Once some family/whatever can ignore and live with the extra 600# of fat in the house, they usually overlook the state of ruin that is their domecile.

A mental exercise for you all.

Imagine for a moment. A woman with anorexia starves herself to death. Her partner is in too much shock to cover her in a sheet, but this doesn't stop others accusing him of not feeding her enough or not looking after her*. As her teenage son watches in horror, the paramedic tucks her emaciated corpse neatly into a body bag used normally for children. She is now so light, the paramedic absently mindedly carries the bag on his shoulder. This makes the news.

Then a bitter, unhappy misanthrope who hides his own messed up psyche behind petty cruelty and attention whoring, posts this story up on one of the forums he frequents, replete with snide comments about 'skinnies' and 'stick insects'. This strikes a chord with the other regulars as it seems to confirm their prejudices against thin people and those with eating disorders, who plainly bring it on themselves and turn everyone's stomachs with their disgustingly bony bodies and vile habit of puking up whatever food they do eat.

She must have been a bad person, and white trash too. After all, since this women didn't look after herself well, she probably lived in utter squalor, right? And let's not forget that thin people often lack the muscle and cardiovascular development to compete effectively in combat sports. How rubbish is that? Obviously, thin people suck. Since racism or homophobia is now not the done thing, everyone gladly takes up the cause of mocking this woman, as it lets them rationalise their bullying via moral approbrium against an easy target who can't answer back.

Then someone makes yet another rude comment about Anatrocity and Fes Fsa being too damn thin and in need of force feeding. This is a running joke on the fora: after all they should fatten up so they can be like everyone else. A massive circle jerk ensues where the usual suspects pour bile and venom over a dead woman who can't respond. Someone admits to getting drunk one night and having sex with a Size 0 woman, to much derision and sarcastic questions about whether he snapped her. Despite the mysoginistic tone, it is considered ethically and culturally acceptable to mock this woman. Who'd want to fuck a skinny bitch anyway? Yuck.

Others make strong arguments about how anorexics cost too much to treat or that they should just sort themselves out. It's easy, after all. These thin bastards are obviously too lazy to try. The fora regulars claim to be a healthy weight, so no one else has the excuse to be otherwise. Genetics or mental health problems or diseases are no excuse. Why? Because the regulars said so. The discussion thread descends into an echo chamber of jokes about pro-ana sites and 14-year-olds with renal failure. No one dares have an opinion of their own as they might get shouted down.

Someone demands pictures of the dead woman. The thread is worthless without a woman who starved herself to death.

Elsewhere, the woman is buried and forgotten, except for those who actually knew her. Everyone moves on to the next pliant lolcow. After all, they bring it on themselves, so it's OK. Thin people - who'd have them?

What do you think?


* And before anyone makes a comment, the cheapness and availability of food in the developed world means that it's just as easy now to eat yourself to death as it is to starve yourself to death.

Dozens of firemen and Red Cross workers took part in an operation to transport a woman weighing 35 stones from her home in Colombia's northern city of Cucuta to a local hospital.


The rescuers were forced to knock down two walls and one door, using saws and drills, to get 70-year-old Clementina Rios out of her home, in an operation that took over four hours to complete.

Making a meal of it: Clementina Rios who weighs in at 35 stone is hoisted out of her home by dozens of rescuers




"We are making a path which we will use to transport the stretcher," said Cucuta Fire Department Lieutenant David Monzalve.


"Later we will attach it to a forklift so it can be taken to the main road where she will be transported in the volunteer firemen rescue vehicle," Monzalve added.


Lying on a stretcher, Rios was carefully lifted by forklift and placed on a truck which drove her to another vehicle that was to transport her to the hospital.

Up, up and away: The emergency services had to demolish two walls to reach the 70-year-old woman

Upon her arrival at the medical centre, Rios' daughter Ruth Blanco said her mother felt much calmer following the procedure to take her out of her home.
"Everyone has been wonderful and she is well. She is happy, because they have her here."


Rios was transferred to the hospital to receive treatment for renal deficiency.

well, it might actually not be a "choice" in the same way that people get hooked on Meth or some shit. Food is an incredible hormonal stimulator and there probably was something amiss with her satiety complex or adrenal glands or some such shit.

Still, when you eat enough to feed a village in sub-Saharan Africa, and you die from it while others are starving and you have to be loaded onto a flatbed...well lets say you had a Carbon Footprint that was way out of wack and nature made a correction.

Also, Bruce Lee had a shorter leg and my first Yoga teacher had scoliosis and dong Yoga-you wouldn't notice she had anything more than a dropped shoulder on one side. Except this one time she came back from a 22 hr flight Sydney-NYC and she was all crooked as hell, "This is me without my practice"

That is in fact not unusual for roleplaying in general.

GURPS' main force is its deep character creation system and emphasis on the 6-sider.

its combat system sucks and its psionics rules are overpowered, but then again, psionics in rpgs usually are.

It also had the coolest, most, obtuse system for officer generation. Somthing that only 80's RPGs could come up with.

OK, you win, it's not her fault. Instead, we should sue McDonalds for serving mega-caloric buns instead of making all their burgers lettuce wrap.

Missing the point. Never mind.

I guess the American edition of the game didn't have the stats for generating British Army of the Rhine characters. The British characters were largely the same as their American counterparts, except they got an extra point of unarmed combat instead of learning how to drive during army basic, and for some reason the authors had the weird misconception that the British military had no snipers or mountain infantry.

Snipers? When it only takes 25 minutes to drive across yer island, who needs snipers?

It's important for a proper RPG to have all sorts of misconceptions, the kinds of things that the game-designers living in momz basement would come up with.

ah...is there a binary choice between being cruel to a dead woman and suing mcdonalds?

Or perhaps there are other avenues?

It's probably a supplement or an edition thing. I know the one I had didn't, but I only had the basic set. We never actually played twilight. Our -impossible to play post-apocalyptic 80's game- of choice was Aftermath.

Cause every post apocalyptic game needs actual nutritional game stats for human flesh.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape was an excellent book and a pretty good movie. I played "Where's Arnie" with my cat, chasing him all over the house for years. Kept him fit.

My mom maried a dude who is morbidly obese, will listen to nothing anyone ever says, and now has diabetes on top of multiple operations. However he remains too fat, and no surgeon will touch him. So his fat is killing him.

Oh ya. The fat has him convinced that the WWE is real. Not kidding. Fat convinces lots of people to do lots of things. Include eating to give fat more fat to play with. Fat becomes an entity unto itself, with its own needs and wants.

But that's less to do with body fat and more to do with mental illness. The mentally ill do tend to smoke more, take more drugs, starve themselves more, eat too much, work too hard, work too little... Madness and excess in all its forms go together very well.

I can use myself as an example here:

Nobody taught me about what constituted a good meal. I used to eat a scrap of bread for breakfast, buy lunch and eat half of that for dinner.

I weighed 121lb (55kg).

On top of that I was a HOPELESS drunk.

Isn't this a similar case? Shouldn't someone have taught this woman about nutrition?

You are absolutely right! We better start changing all our jails to rehab facilities. No one is ever at fault, they are just mentally ill. The myth of personal responsibility has been broken, thank you.

If you love someone who weighs 750 pounds

stop bringing them food.

I'm so sick of self indulgent fat people who are just plain pigs. If you have a gland problem or whatever that's one thing, but these folks who eat themselves to death because they aren't full unless they eat a dozen eggs, 5 pancakes, a pound of bacon, a dozen biscuits, 3 bowls of cereal and an apple pie for breakfast should be thrown to the sharks.
Fuckin' pigs.

they know about nutrition. it's just easier to roll half a block to the nearest mcshithole and get a number 3 supersized.

Lebell

what neildo said.

you have to look at the origin of the problem.

fat people often have problems with self esteem and have a low stresstolerance.
its a bit of a stereotype but often true: they eat to fill an emotional emptiness they are feeling.
the lustless, lazy attitudes come from depressions.

they eat because they feel unworthy, then grow fat and people make jokes about them/ find them unattractive and they see their original beliefs about themselves confirmed.
chicken or the egg?

a friend of mine used to have this ginormous girlfriend.
she always went like: oh yeah i got as metabolism problem etc. i really wanna lose weight!
she said that while munching on the last piece of a xxl sized pizza....

Fat has a mind of its own -

DR CAROLINE WEST:
These days we're not so outrageously harsh when it comes to dealing with people trying to reduce their body fat. We're beginning to understand fat more and more. For a while now, scientists have been pushing to give fat back its dignity, and believe it or not, fat has now been upgraded to the class of body organ. The message is to think of fat like we think of other organs in the body, like the kidneys or the liver. In other words, fat is a lot more complex and a lot smarter than we originally thought.

And fat tells my Step dad that the WWE is 4 R34L!!! He could not possibly be mentally ill, he was cleared fit to work Security at the Nuclear Power Plant.
