He Pingping RIP: World’s Shortest Man In Pictures And Vital Statistics

by | 16th, March 2010

HE Pingping RIP. You were the world’s shortest man. Who the world’s shortest man is now we do not know. As one life ends, another record-breaking career is born. He Pingping was just 21. Not inches. Years. Pingping was 74.6cm tall. Or 74.61cm, if you’re reading the Times.

Born in 1988 in Wulanchabu, China, Mr Pingping had a form of primordial dwarfism. Says Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, predictably:

“For such a small man, he made a huge impact around the world.”
