When living on the street Wiremu weighed a massive 280kgs. An addict, and barely able to move, he slept on Karangahape Road. People regularly abused him, threw things at him and walked around him. He was living in a shop doorway, sniffing glue, being fed fast food every few hours by kinder passersby, and about to die! Linda, a social worker from the Auckland City Mission, intervened and after a stint in hospital Wiremu began a long road to recovery. Six meets Linda from the Auckland City Mission who helped in Wiremu’s journey back. Six talks to Wiremu, who opens up to tell a tragic tale of what led to him being in such a bad way.
