Firemen in Germany had to use a 38.5-toncrane to hoist a German man weighing 660 pounds out of his apartment and take him to hospital, the fire brigade in the northern city of Hamburg said on Monday.
"Because the man was so heavy, we couldn't carry him on one of the normal stretchers, so we had to use the crane," said Hamburg fire brigade spokesman John Ralfs.

Ten firemen were needed to lift the 63-year-old man onto a hospital bed placed inside a large industrial container, which the crane had hoisted level with his first-floor balcony.

The crane then lowered the container to the ground and the man was wheeled off it, jacked into an ambulance van and taken to hospital.
