Kenneth Brumley is one of the heaviest people ever recorded, whose weight was confirmed. His story is featured on the documentary Half Ton Dad as a father of four who weighs 73 stone.

As a child, Brumley played basketball, baseball and American football which kept his weight average, but after a move to California at age 19, he stopped playing and the weight began to accumulate. At his heaviest, Brumley had a daily caloric intake of approximately 30,000 calories.

Bed-bound for four years, a fire crew had to hammer down a wall in Brumley’s house to get him out after he was finally accepted as a gastric bypass patient in an American hospital.
