AN investigation has been launched after a 30-stone woman died in Mallorca after firefighters spent more than 12 hours trying to remove her from her home. 

Paramedics were called to the 43-year-old’s home in Inca late on Saturday evening, but decided they needed firefighters to help lift her out of her home due to her size.

She was too large to be taken down the stairs on a stretcher or out of the windows.

The morbidly obese woman, who has remained unnamed, suffered cardiac arrest after she was removed from the house from the roof by a crane and put into an ambulance.

She died at the scene at 9.30am yesterday.

The investigation is likely to find that the removal of the woman had to be performed in daylight for safety reasons.
