The world's largest human domino, comprising of 10,267 people, was formed on the grasslands in Ordos, the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, on Thursday, toppling a Guinness World Record created a decade ago.
The people were divided into more than 50 groups to form the word Ordos both in Chinese and English.
In a human domino, the person standing first falls backward, causing the row of people behind him to fall one after another. It took an hour for the domino to complete.

"This magnificent feat was very hard to achieve, but we were all confident we would rewrite history," said Liu Manshan, who was in charge of the event and head of the culture bureau of Ordos' Dongsheng district.
The last Guinness World Record of the largest human domino was created by 9,234 students in Singapore in 2000.
