(NEW YORK DAILY NEWS) — A 72-year-old man in Nepal claims to be the world’s shortest man, and he may prove to be the shortest adult human in Guinness World Records’ history.

Chandra Bahadur Dangi says he is 1 foot, 10 inches tall, which would make him 1.6 inches shorter than the current official record holder, Junrey Balawing of the Philippines, and one centimeter shorter than any adult human ever documented.
