Collection of 6,016 sick bags throws up new world record
8th March, 2011

Niek Vermeulen has the sort of collection to make his rivals sick with envy.


Niek Vermeulen has broken the Guinness world record for collecting the most airline sick bags (Picture: CEN)



The 74-year-old has bagged the Guinness world record for collecting the most airline sick bags on the planet.

Neik, from Wormerveer, in the Netherlands, has accumulated 6,016 barf-bags from 1,142 different airlines in 160 countries in more than 40 years of collecting.

He started collecting them when he made a bet with a friend to see who could accumulate the most of any one item and register a world record.

He said: 'I'm old now and my medical situation is best described as "the time is coming". So I've started looking for a successor to take over my collection.'

His favourite bag if from NASA space shuttle Columbia that spent 16 days in space.
