Man claps as loud as the roar of a helicopter

Zhang QuanA Chinese man whose clapping hands are nearly as loud as the roar of a helicopter is hoping to get into the record books.

Zhang Quan, 70, of Chongqing city, had his clapping monitored by local environmental protection officials, reports Chongqing Business News.

His claps measured 107 decibels - only slightly lower than helicopter blades which measure 110 decibels.

"When I am clapping, even my own ears feels painful, no mentioning of others. That's why I usually don't clap," says Zhang.

Workers from the environmental protection bureau confirmed that technically Zhang could face arrest for noise pollution if he clapped too often.
