HUNAN PROVINCE, CHINA (WFLX) - A baby in China tips the scales at 44 pounds. Chinese media are calling him the "Michelin Baby".

He was slightly above average when he was born, but over the past 10 months, he's ballooned to the heft of a 6-year-old child.

Doctors are concerned his weight could cause health problems in the future. They're trying to figure out what caused the child to gain so much weight so quickly.
