10 WORLD’S SMALLEST PEOPLE YOU WON’T BELIEVE EXIST
How tall is the average person? According to the World Health Organization's growth reference standards, the global average age-adjusted height for women is 159.5 cm, and 171 cm for men. But we all know that these are just estimates, and that there are people who are much taller than the average person, and some who are way smaller.
In today’s video, we are going to look at the smallest people ever. And were not talking about those who are like a few inches shorter than the average guy. No. These people are so small, you’re probably going to have a hard time believing that they are full-grown adults.
And just take a look at coach Bill Belichick working his way through his favorite Footlong sandwich from Subway! Can you imagine a person being only as tall as Bill’s Footlong?https://youtu.be/_HPl3dioPv4
Yeah, the people on this short video are...well, short. I mean reeeally short.
You won’t believe they actually exist!
#10. Edward Nino Hernandez
Born on 10 May 1986, Hernandez goes down the history books as one of the shortest men in history.
He was officially named as the shortest living man at the age of 24 years by the Guinness World Records. He was 71cm (2 ft. 4 inches) tall at the time.
At 34 years of age, Hernandez stood at 71.8 cm (2 ft. 4.3 inches) tall; twice as small as the average height of a Christmas tree!
Edward had a normal upbringing like many other kids, having similar interests and achieving all the developmental milestones. But that was only until attaining the age of 4, when his parents realized that he wasn’t growing any taller… like his friends at home and at school.
His parents sought medical advice, but it was 20 years later that his disorder was confirmed to be Hypothyroidism. But despite his condition, Hernandez has an attitude for life. You can find him dancing to reggaeton, merengue, and vallenato music and, enjoying life as a whole.
#9. Bridgette Marie Jordan
Most people with forms of dwarfism don’t realize it until when they are 4 or 5 years old. Bridgette is, however, a special exception. She was ridiculously small at birth and weighed only one pound, 12 ounces, and was only about 31.7 cm (1 foot 0.5 inches) tall! Can you imagine that!
Brad, Bridgette’s younger brother, though slightly taller than her, was also small. Combined, the pair could only reach 5 feet 5 inches.
The duo was born with a rare genetic condition called Micro cephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type ii. It makes people small, smaller than regular dwarfs.
Bridgette may have had her legs dangle midair when seated, and wore an infant size 2 shoe, but that didn’t put her down; she was an all-singing, all-dancing cheerleader with her friends at Kaskia College, Illinois.
And she has more to shout about - she was crowned the world’s shortest woman standing at just 68.8cm (2 ft. 3.12 inches) tall by the Guinness World Records in September, 2011.
#8. Khagendra Thapa Magar
Standing at 73.7 cm (2ft. 2.4 inches) tall, Magar was declared the world’s shortest man (mobile) by Guinness World Records in 2010 after his 18th birthday. He eventually lost the title to Chandra Bahadur Dangi but later regained the title after Dangis’ death in 2015.
In the words of his father, bathing Magar could only be bathed meticulously as the boy was so tiny; he could fit in the palm of your hand.
Magar rolled with the punches and made the most out of his newly acquired fame. He travelled to more than a dozen countries and made television appearances in Europe and the United States.
At home, he became an official face of Nepal’s tourism campaign.
Indeed, life can be challenging when you weigh just 6 kilos and you don’t fit into a world built for the average person. But Khagendra certainly didn’t let his small size stop him from getting the most out of life.
#7. Lin Yu-chih
Lin is the former shortest man according to the Guinness World Records, measuring 67.5 cm (2ft 2.58 inches) tall.
Born in 1972, Lin suffers from osteogenesis imperfect, a genetic bone disorder that hinders normal growth of bone and bodily height. Also known as brittle bone, the rare disorder made his bone and body shrink to the size of a toddler.
Lin is no person to sit down and whine about his condition. He remains steadfast in his pursuit of his goals and dreams. He is best living his life as an author and social activist in Taipei, Taiwan. Lin has also appeared in the British Channel 4 documentary called “The World’s Smallest Man and Me” hosted by Mark Dolan.
He is the founder of the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Association, an organization which creates awareness about the condition and the plights of people who live with it around the globe.
