The Tallest Sand Castle
A sand artist from California built a 39-foot-tall sandcastle on a Brazilian beach. It is considered sa world record by Guinness officials.
Guinness World Records adjudicators traveled to the Niteroi, Brazil, beach to examine the big castle built by Rusty Croft, a sand artist and co-owner of California-based Sand Guys. His company has created sculptures for corporations such as Google and Facebook.
He used 20 truckloads of sand and was sponsored by Caterpillar Inc. Archie Lionce of Caterpillar said a decision from Guinness will arrive within days.
The current Guinness World Record holder for the largest sandcastle is Ed Jarrett, who managed to construct a 37-foot, 10-inch castle in Farmington, Conn., in 2011.
