(ORDO NEWS) — In 2011, Khagendra Tapa Magar was recognized as the smallest person in the world capable of moving independently.
The Guinness record holder died in 2020 at the age of 27 from heart and lung diseases that he suffered in the last years of his life.
The height of Khagendra Tapa Magar, who lived in Nepal and since 2011 has been the country’s goodwill ambassador in the field of tourism, was only 67.08 centimeters, and the man weighed only 6 kilograms.
At birth, on October 14, 1992, Khagendra was so small that he could fit in the palm of his hand, his father recalls.
According to the editor-in-chief of the Guinness Book of Records Craig Glenday, having learned about the death of the smallest person on Earth, despite the difficulties experienced by people of small stature in the world familiar to us, Khagendra Tapa Magara “got the most out of life.”
After Magar, the title of the smallest person on Earth passed to a resident of Colombia, Eduard Nino Hernandez, whose height is 70.21 cm.
