World's Shortest Man

Edward Nino Hernandez of Bogota, Colombia has been named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the shortest man in the world. The 24-year-old Hernandez is 27 inches (70 cm) tall and weighs only 22 pounds. The previous record holder was He Pingping of China, who was slightly taller than Hernandez and died last March. Hernandez is currently working as a actor in a Colombian film in which he plays a “drug thug.”

But Edward Nino Hernandez is going to hold this title only until Oct. 14, when the world's shortest living teen, Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal turns 18. He is even shorter - 22 in (56 cm).
