A Mexican man once listed as the world's heaviest human being has died at the age of 48.

Manuel Uribe had slimmed down to about 867 pounds, well below his peak weight of 1,230 pounds, which was certified in 2006 as a Guinness World Record.

Uribe had been confined to his bed in Monterrey for years and had to be taken to the hospital with a crane earlier this month because of an abnormal heartbeat.
