    Doctors tell woman she's too fat for X-ray machine, send her to local zoo

    "It's humiliating. I was told if elephants and hippos need MRIs, they have the equipment at the Bronx Zoo. It was like I was an animal," Walters told the Post.
    Wow....

    obviously if she was too big she was too big.

    she should be happy that the zoo could help or she would be endangered

    Hehehe, the funny thing is, the zoo can't help her though!!

    For the record, the Bronx Zoo told the Post it gets about a dozen such calls a year but it doesn't have such facilities for its animals.

    that was exactly what I was going to post.
    I think that woman should be more concern about her weight, because not only will produce backache, but there are a lot of other effects too

    I worked at a large hospital and once we had a guy so huge we had to weigh him on the scales at shipping & receiving dock.

    I weight myself in the scale we use for paper rolls too (and those are extremely heavy)
    (but I do this because it is a digital scale and can change between pounds and kilos )
