7-foot-7, Sandy Allen, the world tallest woman died yesterday in an Indiana nursing home. Sandy Allen was 53-years old. Ms. Allen received care at Shelbyville Nursing Home for medical conditions related to her extreme height. Poor circulation in her legs caused Ms. Allen to rely on a wheelchair for getting about. Although Sandy Allen weighed just 6.5 pounds at birth, she developed quickly. By the age of 10, she was 6 feet 3 inches. By the time Ms. Allen was 16, she was 7 feet 1 inch.
