Edward Nino Hernandez 24, who is 70.21 cm (2 ft 3.46 inches), has been recognized as the world's shortest man in the upcoming Guinness World Records 2011 book. According to her mother Noemi, he hasn't grown since he was 2 years old.

The previous titleholder was He Pingping of China, who was 1.5 inches (4 centimeters) taller and died March 13. The Guinness people discovered Nino afterward.

Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal is expected to take over after he turns 18 on Oct. 14. He measures about 22 inches (56 centimeters) and is currently recognized by Guinness as the shortest living teen.
