50-children bound in world record-breaking bubbleNovember 24th, 2007 - 2:09 pm ICT by admin
London, Nov 24 (ANI): A bubble enclosing 50 children has set a new record of having the highest number of kids bound in a bubble before bursting.
The bubble was 11ft across and more than 5ft high before it burst.
The creator of the bubble was bubbleologist Sam Heath who shaped it at the Science Museum in London.
The children, all of whom had to be over 5ft, squeezed on a stage surrounded by a moat of soapy water, reports the Daily Mail.
Heath, then, dipped a wand - a metal hoop with a 36ft circumference - into the solution, before raising it above their heads.
Representatives from the Guinness Book of Records were on hand to judge the event and the soapy spectacle was witnessed by hundreds of schoolchildren.
Heath had briefly held the record in 2006, when he encased 19 school kids in a bubble in Surrey.
The new bubble has popped the previous record of 42 bubble-bound children. (ANI)
