Abheesh P Dominic's unique feat set to a Guinness World Record
Kerala's Abheesh P Dominic broke open over a hundred coconuts with his bare hand to set a Guinness World Record. Mr Dominic smashed the record in the city of Kottayam earlier this year in February but a video of his feat was uploaded on Guinness World Records' official YouTube channel only on Wednesday. Mr Dominic managed to crack the previous record of 118 coconuts.
A video of the feat shows 140 coconuts laid out in a long line on a low wall. A group of enthusiastic supporters gather at a distance to cheer Mr Dominic on during his record attempt as he waits for his time to begin. Going at a speed of two coconuts a second, Mr Dominic brings his right fist down with force each time.
"I decided to break this record because I am from a remote village and Guinness World Records is only a dream for any one of us," Mr Dominic tells the organisation. "I am a man of strong determination and I strongly believe in the willpower of human beings."
"Woah that's nuts. Coconuts," jokes one YouTube user. "That's not a hand that's a hammer," writes another.
