He considered the weight loss surgery as his Christmas gift before Christmas. But to his dismay, the official Christmas Day turned into his day of death.

‘A Mexican man, who is the world's most obese has died of heart failure at the age of 38, two months after bariatric surgery to lose weight.’

Andres Moreno, 38, died of a heart attack and peritonitis (inflammation of the abdominal lining) in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora state, Mexico. Early on Christmas Day, he was having difficulty in breathing and family members took him to the hospital in an ambulance, but he died on the way.

"He was doing well, but he had had two previous heart attacks. He became short of breath, and died in the ambulance," said Carmen Palacios, who had been helping him during his rehabilitation process over the past year.
