Living in Salt Lake City, USA, the woman had not cut her nails since 1979. The shortest was, according to Wikipedia, 71.6cm (28.2 in), the longest 80cm (31.5 in).
Apparently the nails did not prevent her from performing ordinary tasks around the house or caring for her aging husband suffering from Alzheimer's.
Tuesday this week the woman was in a car accident and all her nails broke. Her injuries were serious but not life threatening.
- How does anyone manage to get nails that long?
- Why would anybody want to do that??
