The world's former heaviest woman, Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, passed away on Monday morning, UAE newspaper Khaleej Times reported citing the Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi.

The 37-year old Egyptian, who initially weighed 500kg, was seen dancing in her bed last month after it was reported she was making progress.

Eman had suffered complications - including heart disease and kidney dysfunction - during her weight loss treatment while in India earlier this year.
