Tallest American dies

Igor Vovkovinskiy, 38, a Ukrainian immigrant who’s lived in the U.S. since age 7, died this week.

At 7 feet, 8⅓ inches, he was the tallest person in America. He weighed 380 lbs. and wore size 26 10E shoes, which had to be custom-made for him.

Vovkovinskiy, who styled himself the “world’s biggest Obama supporter,” and was something of a celebrity, died of a heart condition. It’s totally unclear how he got into sports cars. Read story here.
