GoFundMe page set up for 700 pound man

Posted: Updated:

We have an update on a story we first brought you Wednesday about a man currently at Baptist Health Paducah.

James King weighs more than 700 pounds. Baptist Health Paducah says it has contacted 75 hospitals around the country, but still can't find one suited for someone who weighs more than 600 pounds.

People have been reaching out to us on Facebook with ideas on how to care for King. They've even been calling the hospital, which tells us it has already looked into most of them. A GoFundMe page has been set up for King to help him pay for his expenses if he's moved to a new hospital.
Here is King's Go Fund Me page.
