700 pound man still looking for hospital that can take care of his needs

The search is still on for a hospital for James King.

As we told you last week, King weighs more than 700 pounds.

Even with bariatric services, Baptist Health doesn't have enough resources to help someone King's size.

Staff there say this is so rare that it is hard to find any hospital suited to help someone over 600 pounds.

The story has been aired by news affiliates across the country and a newspaper in England.

People are giving us suggestions for King. King's family has also e-mailed national shows like Dr. Phil, My 600 Pound Life, and the Doctors.

They still haven't had any luck figuring out what the next step is.

If you want to help, Pancheros Restaurant in Paducah is giving 10% of all of its proceeds on Tuesday to King's GoFundMe account.

That's located across from Chick-fil-A, next to Fire House Subs on Hinkleville Road.
