A chronically obese teenager who was cut free from her home by workmen after she grew too big to go outside has vowed to turn her life around.
Georgia Davis, who weighs about 380 kilograms, has been recovering in hospital in Wales since the dramatic rescue from the house that had become her prison.
The 19-year-old is receiving round-the-clock medical attention from her specially designed bed and is breathing via an oxygen mask.
Speaking from her ward following the rescue, Davis said she was "sick" of her weight and promised to get her life back.
"This is the last time you'll ever see me like this," she told The Sun newspaper.
Medics were called to the teenager's terraced house in Aberdare, south Wales, on May 23 after she became unwell. The following day a team of police, firefighters, paramedics, social services personnel, council officers and builders worked together to free her.
After demolishing part of her house, Davis was carried out on a specially constructed stretcher before a reinforced ambulance took her to hospital.
