London: Jason Holton, believed to be Britain's 'heaviest man', has passed away. Holton died of internal organ failure a week before his 34th birthday. Holton, who weighed 317kg, died last Saturday in Surrey, his family said.

Holson was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance by six firefighters, said his mother Leysa. Holton's kidneys were the first to fail. She said doctors told her son would die "within a week". "I thought the doctors would be able to save him again, but sadly, within a week," says Holton's mother, the doctors said her son would die.

Grieving the death of his father, Holton began to binge eat as a teenager. And started consuming up to 10,000 calories a day. Donor kebab was regularly used for breakfast. Jason Holton lived in a purpose-built council bungalow. Solid furniture was used for Holton's comfort. Holton was bedridden at the end of his life. He was unable to move and had shortness of breath. He believes that time is up. I am turning 34 now. "I knew I had to try something," Holton told TalkTV last year.

In 2020, Holton was unconscious. A team of more than 30 firefighters helped get Holton to the hospital that day. Holton was airlifted from the third floor flat using a crane to the hospital. Holton described the incident as the worst time of his life. Two years after that, Holton had several minor strokes and a blood clotting disorder.
