Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City, Utah, was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest fingernails in the world. Totalling over 28 feet long, she was once offered $10,000 by a Japanese television program to cut her fingernails:
Redmond’s nails, which hadn’t been cut since 1979, were broken in the crash. According to the Guinness Web site, her nails measured a total of more than 28 feet long in 2008, with the longest nail on her right thumb at 2 feet, 11 inches.
Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Lt. Don Hutson says Redmond was ejected from an SUV in the crash and taken to the hospital in serious condition.
