Once world's heaviest man cremated in Mexico

Posted:
A Mexican man once listed as the world's heaviest human has been cremated after dying Monday at the age of 48.
   The body of Manuel Uribe was brought to the Serorrey funeral home aboard a flat-bed truck, on the same special bed where he spent much of the last decade.
   Funeral home director Pedro Reyes said Serorrey's cremation facility was the only one in the northern city of Monterrey able to handle Uribe's body.
   Reyes said Tuesday the oven temperature was set about 60 percent higher than normal.
   A religious service was held Tuesday for Uribe. Plans for the ashes weren't clear.
   Uribe had slimmed down to about 867 pounds (394 kilograms), after his peak weight of 1,230 pounds (560 kilograms) was certified in 2006 as a Guinness World Record.
