Hopes Fade For Wan Ton
Morbidly obese Chinese trumpet star Wan Ton Marsalis is still in critical condition in a Beijing hospital as doctors fight to save his life. Marsalis, 38 stone, was craned out of his third floor Beijing flat on Friday after his bed collapsed and he was unable to move. The weight of his man-breasts compressed his lungs leading to his brain becoming starved of oxygen.
Doctor Xiao Ping-Pong said, "We are doing all we can but Wan Ton remains in a critical condition".
Marsalis performed with the Ottery St Mary (Finger of Fudge) Band at their centenary concert in 1998.
