Sickly, obese Bronx woman dies in Hungary after airlines say she's too fat to fly [View all]


A sickly, obese Bronx woman was left stranded in Hungary then died from kidney failure after airline officials booted her from three New York-bound flights because she was too fat, her husband says.

ďAll we wanted was to come back home to get her treatment,Ē said a grieving Janos Soltesz, a Staten Island Ferry security guard whose 56-year-old wife, Vilma, died in Hungary nine days after she was kicked off the first of three jets.

Her illness, a combination of kidney disease and diabetes, caused her to gain water weight, and the airline said it didnít have a seat-belt extender for her, Janos said.
