Man with world's longest hair dies
A Thai man who reportedly had the world's longest hair had died, a newspaper reported Wednesday.
Hu Sengla, whose hair was 19 feet, 1 inch long, died Tuesday of complications from a stroke, said Thai Rath, Thailand's largest newspaper.
The report said Hu, a member of the Hmong hill tribe minority, was 77 years old, but other accounts indicated he was at least 87.
Hu was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the longest hair. When a Guinness judge came to measure his mane in 1997, Hu said he had cut it when he was 18 and fell ill, so he decided never to cut it again.
