WORLD BRIEFING / AND FINALLY . . .

The groom wore a bedsheet

October 27, 2008|Times Wire Reports

The world's heaviest man tied the knot in Monterrey, Mexico. Manuel Uribe, who hasn't left his bed in six years, married Claudia Solis in front of more than 400 guests.

A flatbed truck towed the bed decorated with a canopy, flowers and gold-trimmed bows to the wedding.

He wore a white silk shirt with a sheet wrapped around his legs. Solis wore a strapless ivory dress and a tiara.

Uribe tipped the scales in 2006 at 1,230 pounds. He has since shed about 550 of them.
