Man goes blind after trying to set Guinness World Record for longest crying marathon – Nigeria

A Nigerian man identified as Tembu Ebere, who attempted to cry for 100 hours to set the Guinness World Record, GWR, has gone blind.

Confirming his health status in an interview with the BBC, Ebere said he began to experience severe headaches, puffy eyes and a swollen face from the constant crying before going temporarily blind for 45 minutes.

While speaking of his determination to cry for one week nonstop, he stated that “I had to re-strategise and reduce my wailing.”
