230 pound man did not take the Eurostar train

The 230-pound man did not take the Eurostar train: Kevin Chenais, a obese French citizen who weighed 230 kilograms, who was prevented from flying from the USA to London on a British Airways plane, was also not accepted to board Eurostar trains from London to Paris.
Kevin Chenais, 22, wanted to move to London on a British Airways plane after 18 months of treatment in the US state of Minnesota.
However, when British Airways refused Chenais on the grounds that it could not provide the necessary health care, Virgin Atlantic Airlines became involved and Chenais was able to return to London.
But now he refuses to move Kevin Chenais at Eurostar, which makes high-speed trains between London and Paris.
Upon this, P&O company, which makes ferry services in the English Channel, announced that it can move Chenais to France.
Chenais, from the village of Ferney Voltaire in eastern France, had to return from Chicago last month.
His father Rene told French media that his son's health problems started at the age of six months.
Rene Chenais also stated that his son needed frequent oxygenation, regular medical care, and was treated for hormone imbalance treatment at a clinic in Minnesota.
Medical care rules
Kevin Chenais actually flew to the USA in May 2012 on a British Airways plane.
However, the company announced last month that they could not ignore the security rules. The company also emphasized that they were in contact with the family and that they were staying at the hotel.
Rene Chenais stated that they were trying to cross the Ocean on the Queen Mary ship, but were again rejected because of 'medical security'.
Finally, father-son was able to fly from New York to London by the plane of Virgin Atlantic Airlines.
Officials from the British Consulate of France wanted to get their father and son on an Eurostar train to go to Paris.
Eurostar, however, refused to take Kevin Chenais on the train, announcing that he could not resist the security rules requiring them to evacuate all passengers through the Channel Tunnel in the event of an emergency.
The ferry company P&O said they would be happy to help. The statement said, "It will be very easy for us as we are ready to carry people with medical needs."
