A 10-year-old child in Indonesia called as the world's most obese kid is now put on a crash diet to save his life.

Arya Permana weighs 192 kilos and is being put on a crash diet for fear he may die. He is the heaviest child of his age in the world and is categorized as morbidly obese.

He can no longer walk, so he had to give up school. Arya consumes five meals a day consisting of rice, fish, beef, vegetable soup, and Tempeh.

He always complains about his breathing and is often fatigued. Arya's parents Rokayah and Ade took him to several doctors in their village in Cipurwasari in West Java, Indonesia. Doctors did not find anything abnormal about his alarming weight. His parents are attempting to cut his diet, for fear that he might die.

To assist in his weight loss, doctors have recommended brown rice to aid in weight loss.

"I have insufficient money to buy food to fulfill his large appetite. I borrow money so that he can eat. Of course, I cannot keep him starving," said Ade.

"I am exhausted now, and I cannot afford expensive hospitals. But I hope to see my son perfectly normal one day," Ade added.

Arya parents are desperately waiting for their son to recover and return to school.
