Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, said to be the heaviest woman in the world, landed at Mumbai's global Terminal 2 airport at 3.05 a.m. on Saturday.
But initially no airline was willing to fly her from Egypt to India owing to her health complications and denied a visa prompting the doctor to seek help from country's foreign minister Sushma Swaraj.
Eman's family said she was born weighing 5kg (11lb) and was diagnosed with elephantiasis - a parasitic infection that causes extreme swelling in a sufferer's limbs and arms.
But today she has been lifted by crane into a specially adapted surgery in a hospital in the Indian city of Mumbai.
Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, 36, who weighs 78 stone, had not left her home in Alexandria for 25 years as she was unable to move from her bed because of her enormous size.
If her weight claims are proven medically, she will beat Pauline Potter (292kg) from the United States to become the world's heaviest woman alive.
MUMBAI: The world's heaviest woman, Eman Ahmed from Egypt, was admitted to Mumbai's Saifee Hospital early on Saturday. A dedicated team of doctors comprising Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, a cardiologist, a cardiac surgeon, an endocrinologist, a chest physician, two intensivists, and three anaesthetists will operate upon Eman and will also be involved in her post-operative care around the clock. It was such a complicated trip that doctors had to begin treating her since December to ensure that she could travel safely from Egypt to India.
Ahmed was transported in a fully equipped truck, along with an ambulance and a police escort to Saifee Hospital, the agency reported.
Eman Ahmed broke down when she was brought out of her home in Alexandria, Egypt, yesterday.
"A special bed/cot had been created for her safe transport on ground and in the plane and a crane had been arranged for her arrival outside the hospital, which helped lift the bed to the first floor of the hospital, where a room has been specifically designed for her", he said.
After she was admitted to the hospital, Ahmed has to undergo "thorough evaluation" for the next two days, according to a spokesperson for the doctor, before going into surgery.
She will undergo a series of tests before doctors proceed to carry out surgical procedures to reduce her weight.
