A man believed to be the world's most obese passed away on Friday in Mexico, barely two months after undergoing a weight-loss surgery.

Andres Moreno, 38, died of a heart attack and peritonitis (inflammation of the abdominal lining) in Ciudad Obregon, in Sonora state, his family said.

Moreno, who at one time tipped the scales at 450 kilos, had bariatric surgery on October 28, in Guadalajara, Jalisco state, in hopes of shedding the excess weight and leading a normal life, Xinhua news agency reported.

The surgery involved removing three-fourths of his stomach and reshaping what was left into a tube to "prevent him from eating too much", the Medical Daily reported in October.

While the operation was considered a success, the ex-policeman complained of feeling ill on Christmas Eve, "and his family called on firefighters to help stabilize him", state news agency Notimex reported.
