Arya, from the village of Cipurwasari in the Arawang Regency, weighs 192kg – approximately 30 stone. His ballooning weight has left him unable to walk, forcing him to stop attending school. He has taken to wearing a sarong after his parents were no longer able to find clothes that fit him.
According to local reports, people have been travelling from nearby villages to view the boy dubbed “the world’s fattest child”.
During Ramadan, Rokayah said, Arya has been fasting for the first half of each day like many children his age. His attempts to fast until sunset were abandoned early in the holy month when he started experiencing stomach pains.
