The world’s shortest man recently died in Italy, where he planned to be part of television program. Officials say He Pingping, of China was 2 feet, 5.37 inches tall. He was certified to be the shortest person by Guinness World Records and had become a recognized figure around the world. Pingping became ill while rehearsing for the program. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died due to a heart condition.
Guinness World records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday, said Pingping was “an inspiration to anyone considered different or unusual” and “showed us that, despite the challenges we face, we can still make the most out of life.”
