43-year-old Man Fused to Chair for 2 Years by Urine and Feces, Dies

News

A 43-year-old morbidly obese Ohio man who fused to his chair after sitting in his own urine and feces for two years has died.

According to police, they were called to an apartment on Sunday after the man's roommates reported he was unresponsive. What police discovered when they got to the apartment was disgusting in every sense of the word:

WTRF reports:

Authorities said he was sitting in his own feces and urine and maggots were visible.

Police were called in to help transfer the man to the hospital.

Authorities said they had to cut a hole in the wall to get the man out of his home.

Shockingly, two other able-bodied people lived there---another man, who had a separate bedroom, and the girlfriend of the man who was stuck in the chair. Officials say the girlfriend served food to him, since he never got up.

Bellaire Code Enforcer Jim Chase says now the tennants have been given orders to clean it or leave it.

One officer said it was the worst thing he ever responded to. And most said the worst part of all was the smell. Ironically the landlord says the man in the chair rented from her before and used to be a vital active person.

WTRF says the man died yesterday.
