Woman's snoring reaches 111.6 decibels

Oct. 15, 2009 at 7:45 PM

DEEPING ST. JAMES, England, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A 60-year-old grandmother has been dubbed Britain's loudest snorer for her 111.6-decibel breathing at nighttime.

Experts said Jenny Chapman, 60, of Deeping St. James, England, whose snoring was measured during a seminar last week at the Hilton Warwick Hotel in Warwick, England, eclipses the sound of a washing machine by 33 decibels and is 61 decibels louder than the average snorer, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.

"I was shocked to hear how loud my snoring was at its peak. I knew I was noisy but not that noisy," Chapman said. "It was a bit embarrassing to be told in front of everyone but it was all good fun by then. The experts said it was the loudest they had ever experienced."

She said she can now sympathize with her husband, who is always complaining about her snoring.

Graham Carr-Smith of Helps Stop Snoring, which ran the seminar, said he is attempting to help Chapman with her snoring through a combination of diet, exercise and natural remedies.
