Monday's Feedback at 5:00:

A Saudi Arabian 2-year-old has the world talking, not because of a viral video on YouTube, but because of his weight.

The little boy is believed to be the youngest person in the world to undergo bariatric surgery.

He weighed 79 pounds before the age of 2, and suffered from severe sleep apnea, which at one time caused him to stop breathing.

His family and medical experts did try two different diet techniques before his surgery.

Do you believe weight loss surgery should be an option for extremely obese children?
