He is The World's Shortest Man?

Shortest Man

Born on the 10th day of Chinese lunar month July in 1988, He Ping-ping (何平平) now is 19 years old but only measures 73 centimeters or 2.4 feet in height. Currently, he is applying for the Guinness World Record as the world's shortest man. He ranked the third in a family from Huade county, Ulanqab (乌兰察布) in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (also the home to the world's tallest man, 2,36-meter Bao Xishun). According to his father He Yun, he was no larger than the size of an adult's palm at birth. Both of his two sisters are normal and now have married.

Last year, Guinness World Records dismissed an application of Nepal's 14-years-old Khagendra Thapa Magar (his height is mere 50 centimeters) to be the world's shortest man but promised to review the case once he grows to 18 years old.
