Human Mattress Domino World Record Smashed

The chance to break the "mattress dominoes" world record was one that a group of 850 people in New Orleans could take lying down.

A Guinness representative was on-site to judge the event and present the World Record certificate in Louisiana.

Until now, the largest human mattress domino involved 550 people, a record achieved in 2011 in Kortemark, Belgium.

Mattresses for the event were donated, and will now go to various local charities.
