191kg 10-year-old put on crash diet over fears he could die

Parents of a 30 stone (191kg) 10-year-old have forced him onto a crash diet through fears he might die, after he ate his way to becoming morbidly obese.

Arya Permana, the second son of Rokayah, 35, and her husband Ade Somantri, 45, a farmer is being put on an extreme diet as his parents try desperately to save him.

The young boy is considered as one of the world's fattest children and cannot physically walk unaided or go to school.

His rapid weight gain began aged just two, when his mum and dad noticed he was much larger than his older brothers were at his age.

Since then, he has been eating five meals a day consisting of rice, fish, beef, vegetable soup and Tempeh - a traditional soy patty - which alone is normally enough to feed two adults.

And because of his astonishing weight, his parents have been unable to find clothes that fit him, leading to Arya wearing just a sarong.



But now his parents are attempting to cut his diet - for fear he might die.

His mother Rokayah Somantri said: "My son is growing up at a rapid rate and I am worried for his health. I do not know any other way to stop him from gaining more weight than to give him less food.

"He is perpetually hungry and has an enormous diet and can actually eat meals of two adults at one time. He is always tired and complains of shortness of breath.

"He only eats and sleeps and when he is not done with both, he jumps into the bathtub and stays there for hours.

"There is no other pain than seeing your own child suffering. My son does not go to school because he cannot walk on his own and needs my round-the-clock assistance.

"He can only take small steps before he looses balance. I wish to see my son studying and playing with other kids in the neighbourhood."
