Firefighters Used To Lift The Obese
It is a very sad indictment of the way that we live our lives that firefighting resources are being called out more often to assist in lifting obese people.
The number of obese people being rescued by firefighters has increased by more than a third in the past three years.
The Telegraph reports that rescuers often have to use lifting equipment and special slings because people are too large to move independently, while windows, walls and interior fittings sometimes have to be removed to create enough space for obese people to be extracted.
In the past year, there were 944 rescues involving obese patients, compared to 709 in the period from 2012 to 2013, according to figures obtained by the BBC.
Ironically The National Obesity Forum said the increase in the figures was due to the fact that obese people are getting bigger, rather than there being more people who are obese.
This in itself rather calls into question the effectiveness of Nanny's continual nagging about how much/what we eat and our weight!
