US authorities say an obese South Carolina man stayed in his recliner without moving for eight months until shortly before his death.

Firefighters had to cut Tillmon Webb, 33, from the chair after his mother called paramedics because he was in pain.

Deputies said the man weighed about 800 pounds (365 kilograms) when he died on Wednesday.

Webb's wife, Ada, says he died of a heart attack.

She said the former preacher injured his knee in March and then stayed in the power recliner at home.

Deputies said Webb had sores on his body and a "very bad odour".

Webb's wife said he didn't want help because he was ready to go to heaven and see Jesus. She said he weighed closer to 500 pounds (230 kilograms).

That's so sad.

I remember seeing an episode of nip/tuck where an obese woman was stuck to her couch, she was embarrassed about having to explain to people how she went to the toilet.

it's no life like that.
