Khagendra Thapa Magar, who measured 67.08 centimeters (2 feet 2.41 inches) tall, died at the hospital in Nepal due to pneumonia. According to his brother, Mahesh Thapa Magar, Khagendra’s heart was affected because of pneumonia, which led him to his death.

Khagendra was first declared as the world’s shortest man in 2010 by Guinness World Records, not until Chandra Bahadur Dangi was discovered and named the world’s shortest mobile man. After Dangi’s death in 2015, Khagendra regained the said title.

Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, said in a statement that they felt “terribly sad” about his passing.

Prior to Khagendra’s passing, Guinness said that the record for the world’s shortest living mobile man is now retained by Edward “Nino” Hernandez of Colombia, a reggaeton DJ who measured 70.21 centimeters tall. In addition, Guinness World Records said that Junrey Balawing of the Philippines, who measured 59.93 centimeters, was still the world’s shortest non-mobile man.
