Man Dies After Sitting in Recliner For 8 Months


OMG. Paramedics warned 550lb Daniel Webb about sitting in his recliner after returning home from hospital with a  sore knee because it would be very difficult for him to get up later. But Mr Webb wanted to be left in peace in his favorite chair and had no intentions of getting out it anyways. Sadly, when paramedics returned eight months later, Mr Webb was still in the recliner never having left it, not even to go to the toilet. Even worse  his body had become physically stuck to the fabric and firefighters had to cut him out of the chair to be taken to hospital, where he died a few hours later.

Mr Webb, who was only 33 and a former preacher, would post sermons from his chair but was too embarrassed to ask for help (What, he was a friggin blogger, that is some bloggers ass!). He slept in it and even went to the toilet in it….oh and his wife cleaned it up, if you were thinking what I was thinking!. They had been married for 2 years after meeting on MySpace (she found a keeper!). Police reported that when Mr Webb was removed from his mobile home, via a hole they had to cut out of the wall, he weighed 800lb and was covered in sores . The wife said they  had no medical cover and couldn’t afford the hospital bills.
