World’s Heaviest Kid Loses 220lbs | TRULY

  • Published on Apr 9, 2019
  • SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV:
    A THIRTEEN-year-old boy, who once weighed 423llbs, has lost over half of his body weight thanks to weight loss surgery and is now looking to have his excess skin removed. Once known as the heaviest child in the world, Arya Permana, from Karawang, West Java, Indonesia is now an active 13-year-old after losing an incredible 220lbs. When he was 10-years-old - and at his heaviest - Arya weighed 423lbs (over 30 stone or 192kg) - the same as six boys his same age. But for all the ways that his life has improved, the weight loss has resulted in a large amount of excess skin on Arya’s arms and chest in particular. The teenager is hoping to have skin removal surgery, at the Hasan Sadikin Hospital in Bandung, after completing the national exams.

    That kid's parents need to be beaten with many stripes for messing up their child's skin by making him obese. Now at such a young age, he got so much damn loose skin. They should have known better. It's common sense not to over feed children and yet so many sorry excuse for parents make their children by overfeeding them. The children don't know better and depends on the parents to care for them responsibly. This is not love. The parents should be ashamed for getting his in this state.

    192 kg?!? He has been through so much! Im here thinking its tough to be a 12 yr old at 65 kg, but he has burnt through so much fat using his passion towards being fit! He has had a surgery but he is still staying fit after it, Kudos to him. Watching this made me inspired to loose a few kg

      He got surgery but he was also trained under the country's famous bodybuilder to toned his body, that also supervised his diet. All that was left was the excess skins.

    Ah!... finally a good ending to a story with someone called Arya in it
    Just been watching the 2016 documentary on UK TV. I came to RU-clip to see when he died because his parents seemed as thick as s***.
    Amazed to see a handsome young man that is totally transformed. Good luck Arya.
