Yao Defen


At seven feet and eight inches high, this Chinese language citizen held the Guinness World Record as tallest female alive. Though she was created at a low-side-of-normal pounds of simply over six pounds, she got gotten nearly seven ft high by her fifteenth birthday. Her condition of gigantism was the consequence of a pituitary gland tumor. She was raised in poverty in Liuan, China. Oddly enough, her mom was slightly below five feet high. She narrowly surpassed the elevation record set with a 7’7″ high American woman called Sandy Allen.
