700-pound Livermore man’s plea for help

A 700-pound Livermore, CA man’s plea for help to lose weight has become a viral sensation on YouTube in less than 24 hours.

Robert Gibbs, who turned 23 on Friday, said he is a prisoner in his own body. 

“I spend most of my days right here, watching TV.” Gibbs said from his couch.

“I have to slide forward to get off this couch. I’m just trapped, and there’s no way out.”

On Thursday, something clicked for the Livermore man who has struggled with his weight since the age of four. He has also been hospitalized twice. As Gibbs was stuck in bed, he recorded the video.
