Largest chest measurement
In February 1958, shortly before his death at the age of 32, Robert Earl Hughes from Illinois, USA weighed 484 kg (1,067 lb / 76 st 3lb) and had a chest measurement of 3.15 metres (10 ft 4in). At the age of six, he weighed 92 kg (203 ib / 14 st 6.7 lb), and by the age of 10 he weighed 171 kg (378 ib / 26 st 13 lb); at the age of 25, he reached 406 kg (896 lb / 63 st 13 lb).

Robert features in the 'Heaviest Humans' section of our #GWR2019 book, out now. He was first listed in our 1964 book as the heaviest man ever. At the time it was reported that he was buried in a piano case measuring 7 ft by 4 ft 4 in which had to be lowered by crane.
