Recognized as the world's tallest living woman, she died in China in 2012.

A documentary called "My Shocking Story: World's Tallest Giant" (2009) had DeFen Yao in it.

In the documentary, she fell down and injured her head and was taken to the hospital. The Shanghai doctors (who promised to treat her) abandoned her and she never heard from them again after she was released from the hospital. Despite later treatment, she died on November 13, 2012 at the age of 40 (born July 15, 1972).
