BANGKOK (UPI) -- A group of 50 Thai rescuers and construction workers freed a 604-pound woman from her third-floor apartment to receive treatment for a tumor, authorities said.

The rescuers, organized by Bangkok Gov. Sukhumbhand Paribatra, freed Umnuayporn Tongprapai, 40, Thursday and transported her to a hospital to receive treatment for a tumor in her right leg, the Pattaya Daily News reported Friday.

Tongprapai said she had not left her apartment in more than three years.

"I've been living in this room and have not gone outside for three years," the woman said. "I can walk a little, just enough that I can go to bathroom. But I have to cling to my son the whole way."

The 50-member rescue team included emergency responders, demolition crews, engineers and operators for a forklift and a scissor lift.

Doctors said the woman is likely the heaviest person in Thailand. They said her advanced weight is likely the result of a thyroid condition and they will attempt to treat the problem along with removing the tumor.
