An 18 year old Nepalese, Dor Bahadur Khapangi, has been officially recognized as the world’s shortest teenager living on the planet.

Khapangi was born on November 14 2004 at Tinkanya village in Sindhuli district, around 130 kilometers (81 miles) southeast of the capital city of Kathmandu.

He had his measurement taken on 23 March 2022 in Kathmandu, Nepal. He measures 2 feet 4.9 inches (73.43 cm).

Dor Bahadur, the youngest son of farmers Takkar Bahadur Khapangi and Rana Maya, is currently enrolled at a school near his village and lives with his parents.

His spokesperson who happened to be Khapangi’s elder brother, Nara Bahadur Khapangi, said, “He is studying in the first grade,”  while speaking with EFE.

At the ceremony, Nara said, “Dor Bahadur was all fine when he was born. He, however, didn’t grow from the age of seven. His peers grew but Dor Bahadur didn’t. We don’t know why”.

According to the Guinness World Records, Colombia’s 36-year-old Edward Hernandez, at 2 feet 4.39 inches (72.10 cm), is currently the shortest man alive (mobile), a record first held in Apr.13, 2010.

However, the title soon passed on to Nepal’s Khagendra Thapa Magar (2 feet 2 inches or 67 cm) and Chandra Bahadur Dangi – also from Nepal – (1 foot 79 inches or 54.6 cm).

Dangi was also the shortest male ever recorded when his height was measured on Feb.26, 2012.

Dangi passed away in February 2012 at the age of 75, and Khagendra in January 2020, following which Hernandez reclaimed his title as the world’s shortest man (mobile). EFE
