THE Fire and Rescue Department had to be called in to help transfer an overweight patient from the Banting Hospital to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang, reported Berita Harian.

According to the daily, the 200kg patient, Norfaizah Mohamad Rashid, 31, had to be transferred because she was suffering from a serious lung problem.

Five people, including firemen from the Putrajaya station, loaded the patient onto a five-tonne lorry because her weight made it impossible for her to be transported on a normal ambulance.

He is now being hounded by the Ah Long, who is demanding that he repay RM51,000, including interest.

The 45-year-old store keeper, known only as Nasir, from Johor Baru, started borrowing from the Ah Long after exhausting his own savings to satisfy his girlfriend, whom he befriended through Facebook a month after his wife died eight months earlier.

He said the 24-year-old woman started asking him for money from the second day they got to know each other, supposedly for her mother’s medical expenses and her brother’s leukaemia treatment.

Over seven months, he said, the girl asked for various amounts ranging between RM700 and RM1,000, almost every other day.

He complied with her requests because he was in love and thought they would get married. She is now steering clear of him and has not responded to his messages.
