Students at Red Cedar Elementary School in the US state of South Carolina assembled more than 6,000 cereal boxes in the canteen in an attempt to cause them all to fall in a chain reaction.

The fifth try resulted in 3,730 of the boxes falling, which was enough to surpass the previous world record of 3,416 boxes.

The record-breaking boxes were then donated to the local charity Bluffton Self Help.

Kim Hall, executive director at the charity, told WSAV-TV: "We estimate it's about 32,000 to 40,000 meals right here that these kids are providing for the community.

"It's really incredible, meaningful and spectacular to be a part of this whole process."
