Li Hang, an 11-year-old obese boy is said to be undergoing the traditional Chinese medicine treatment after his weight increased while suffering a rare condition from the age of three. An 11-year-old obese boy who weighs 23 stone has been set on fire in a bizarre bid to lose weight.

The treatment includes fire cupping, fire therapy – known as ‘huo liao’ – and acupuncture.
