(Scroll down for video) Parents of a young boy are very concerned over the failing health of their son.

The 14-year-old obese boy of Jiangxi, China, is suffering organ failure after his weight reached a whopping 330 pounds.

After the boy’s parents put him on a diet, his obsession with food has led him to take food from classmates. However, when their parents complained, the boy began looking for food in other places.

The boy named Xu, allegedly also asked restaurants for food they can no longer sell. As a young boy, he would cook noodles when his parents were not around after his family tried to stop him from eating too much.

After a while, Xu turned to dumpster diving to find edible food to feed his obsession. According to his parents, the boy has been obsessed with food since he was a baby and always had problems with his weight.

Now, at age 14, Xu is beginning to show signs of organ failure because of his massive body weight.
