Woman's record-length fingernails broken in crash

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah woman listed in the Guinness Book
of World Records for her long fingernails has lost them in a car
crash.
Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City sustained serious but
non-life-threatening injuries in the accident Tuesday.
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.
Redmond has been featured on TV in episodes of "Guinness Book
of World Records" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not."
