The world’s shortest man, Chandra Bahadur Dangi has died while undergoing treatment at Lyndon B.Johnson Tropical Medical Center, Pago Pago, American Samoa. Dangi was in the AS to attend a program. He was 76.
Chandra Bahadur Dangi of Nepal has been named the ‘shortest man ever’ and the ‘shortest man living’ by Guinness World Records in Kathmandu on Sunday (February 26). The 72-year-old bachelor from Dang stands 54.6cm tall.
The title of ‘world’s shortest man’ may change hands in the coming weeks as a new claimant has been discovered. Chandra Bahadur Dangi, a 72-year-old Nepali who claims to be 56 centimetres tall, could become the new ‘world’s shortest man’ if Guinness World Records confirms his height.
