A 57-stone man has been booted out of the hospital that was trying to help him lose weight after he ordered a pizza.

The 33-year old tipped the scale at 800 lbs and he was in Rhode Island Hospital in a special programme designed to get his weight down to 550lbs.

Then he would be suitable for gastric bypass surgery, and hopefully a much healthier lifestyle.

But after losing just 20lbs Assanti was kicked out after he was caught ordering a pizza to his hospital room.

Now his father refuses to take him home for fear he will return to his bad habits and is driving around the local area trying to find another hospital who will accept his son.

Social services in the area have also stepped in to try and find a solution.
