Folole Muliaga was one of New Zealand's most obese women
A Coroner has found that the disconnection of power to south Auckland woman Folole Muliaga's home contributed to her death. The Coroners report is here.
It found she died of natural causes due to her morbid obesity. This isn't just someone who is fat, it's not someone who is obese, it is seriously overweight. Morbid obesity is defined as being 100 lbs. or more over ideal body weight or having a Body Mass Index of 40 or higher. (update Muilaga's BMI was 60.)
Less then two percent of men and four percent of women are that obese. People that obese need bariatric surgery.
