MALE ANOREXIC DIED FOR 20 MINS AFTER SHRINKING TO 4.5 STONE

A man who developed anorexia as a teen has told that dying for 20 minutes helped shock him into recovery. Matthew Booth, 20, shrunk to just 4st 5lbs after he began starving himself when he was 14. At his worst he stopped eating and drinking completely and at 18 was rushed to hospital, where his heart stopped and doctors battled for 20 minutes to bring him back to life. Incredibly, he has now made a full recovery and is hoping to become a personal trainer one day. The 6ft 2in student, from Bury, Manchester, said his problems began when he was relentlessly beaten by a gang of school bullies every day for over a year because he was 'different'.
