Human mattress dominoes chain – level 3
An appliance and electronics company in America has set a new world record for the largest human mattress dominoes chain ever!
1,200 individuals toppled over one after the other in a warehouse in Maryland. The full line took 13 minutes and 38 seconds to get from the beginning to the end, and was held inside the 70,000-square-feet (6,500 square metres) Gaylord National Resort and Conference Centre.
The mattresses will now be donated to local charities aimed at combating homelessness and poverty.
Difficult words: appliance (a machine), topple (to fall), donate (to give something for free), aim at (to plan to do something), combat (to fight).
