Scream to win

SHORT shrieks, high-pitched yelps, and drawn-out wails rang out in Thailand at an international competition aimed at setting a new record for the loudest scream. Russian Sergey Savelyev chimed in at 116.8 decibels - roughly as loud as an ambulance siren - to win Saturday's competition in the seaside town of Pattaya.

His effort fell short of breaking the 129-decibel Guinness World Record for the loudest scream set in 2000 in London. The Russian walked away with a check for 30,000 baht (US$900).
