 Meet the World's Shortest Man
Meet the world's shortest man - a 24-year-old Colombian who is just 27 inches tall.

Edward Nino Hernandez weighs just 22lbs and has just been officially certified as the world's shortest living man by Guinness World Records.

"He hasn't grown since he was two years old," The Telegraph quoted his mother, Noemi, as saying.

However, another soon-to-turn man teenager Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal will overtake Hernandez, being 22 ins tall.

He is currently recognised by Guinness as the shortest living teenager.

Although doctors were never able to diagnose the reason behind Hernandez's condition, he is happy.

"I feel happy because I'm unique," he said.

Although he dropped out of school in the eighth grade, Hernandez is very sociable, loves to travel - though he hasn't been outside Colombia - and likes to play dominoes. Sitting alone at home is not his cup of tea though.

What's more, he even has a girfriend - named Fanny and measures just under 5ft, he said.
