'Sex ramp' saves fattest man's wedding day
A man who was once declared the world's fattest living person has consummated his marriage, with a little help from his friends and a specially built "sex ramp".
Mexico's Manuel Uribe, 47, married his 38-year-old wife two weeks ago after being carted to the ceremony in a flatbed truck, despite having slimmed down to 300kg for the big day, Britain's Daily Star newspaper reported.
Uribe once weighed about 570kg.
However, because of his weight he couldn't consummate the marriage until his friends built a metre-long ramp with reinforced concrete.
This let him raise the lower half of his body so his new bride could access his private parts better.
Uribe told the Daily Star he and his wife have "finally had sex and we are a true couple in the eyes of God".
