Eman Ahmed, who was once the world's heaviest woman, is expected to reach Burjeel hospital in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, the spokesperson of the hospital has announced.
A news report said earlier that Eman was likely to fly on a non-scheduled carrier at around 2 am on Wednesday. The sources said that the final details of the arrival were not yet confirmed. The 36-year-old Eman is leaving India close to 300 kg lighter after undergoing treatment at a hospital in Mumbai.
Saifee hospital earlier said that they have not been receiving any communication from the VPS Healthcare that owns the Burjeel Hospital.
However, in a statement released on Wednesday the hospital said that Mr Huzefa Shehabi, COO Saifee Hospital, has received an email communication from VPS Burjeel Hospital saying that Eman is “stable, in good health and fit to fly.”
“This is a complex case and a number of different arrangements are being considered, including a hydraulic stretcher being flown in from Italy...The safety and wellbeing of the patient forms a critical part of the logistical arrangements and we will ensure that the VPS medical team will be able to deliver,” said spokesperson for VPS Healthcare in remarks quoted by DNA.
