A CHRONICALLY obese teenager was still in hospital after being cut free from her home by workmen following an illness.
Georgia Davis, 19, weighed up to 60 stone by the time she was urgently rescued from the house that had become her prison.
Neighbours claimed today the teenager, from Aberdare in the South Wales valleys, had not been seen outside for up to three years.
Dozens of neighbours watched as Miss Davis – once dubbed Britain’s fattest teen – was carried out of her home on a specially-constructed stretcher.
More than 40 police, firefighters, paramedics, social services personnel, council officers and builders worked together to free her.
Although unwell, she was still conscious and reportedly flanked by a medical officer, nurse and social worker as she was carried out.
Miss Davis became a minor celebrity when she took part in a US bootcamp series and slimmed down to a healthier size.
But neighbours claimed her disappearance from view coincided with a new bout of weight gain around three years ago.
“I think the TV programme helped to start with but then she was under a lot of pressure to keep it off,” said neighbour Jane Price, 52.
“I don’t think I’d seen her for about three years. It’s such a shame because she has so much to live for.”
She added a team of workmen had arrived at the home the day before she was freed to plan the extraction.
Jason O’Sullivan, 18, another neighbour, said he had only ever seen the teenager once in the time he had lived in the area.
“Yeah, can’t say I know her because she was never outside. It must be terrible being inside all the time,” he said.
