Fact Check: No, this is not the X-ray of a 900-pound man; here’s the truth

A picture is going viral on social media with a claim that it is an x-ray of a 900 pounds man.

” X-ray of a 900-pound man. Nobody is “big-boned. Please take care of yourself,” the text on the post read.

At the time of filing the report, the above post had approximately 2300 shares on Facebook.

FACT CHECK

When NewsMobile fact-checked the viral picture, we found the claim to be fake.

On putting the image through Reverse Image Search, we found that the picture is a screenshot of a clip from a documentary – 70 Stone And Almost Dead. This documentary was about Keith Martin, a British man who weighed over 900 pounds.

We found the specific video segment of the documentary on a site called Vimeo titled, “Saving Britain’s 70-Stone Man // BMI.”

Saving Britain’s 70-Stone Man // BMI from Playdead on Vimeo.

In the video, it is clear that the segment from which the screenshot has been taken is a computer generated model to give viewers a better understanding of the skeleton structure of Keith.

This proves that it is not an actual x-ray and hence the claim was fake.
