1,100-pound woman dies

Doctors say an Egyptian once known as "the world's heaviest woman" has died in a hospital in the United Arab Emirates. She was 37.

Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi said that Eman Abdul Atti died at 4:35 a.m. on Monday.

Doctors described her death as being due to complications from her weight, including heart disease and kidney dysfunction.

The hospital said: "Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family."

At one point, Abdul Atti reportedly weighed 1,100 pounds. Doctors blamed her weight on a thyroid condition.

Abdul Atti arrived in the UAE in May, receiving care from a team of 20 doctors at Burjeel Hospital. She earlier received medical treatment in India and underwent surgery that saw her lose some 660 pounds.
