World’s shortest man Chandra B. Dangi dies at 75
Chandra Bahadur Dangi, who was reported as the world’s smallest man with a height of 54.6 cm in Guinness World Records, passed away on Friday.
Dangi, a permanent citizen of Dang district, was 76-year-old. He breathed his last at Lyondn B. Johnson Tropical Medical Center in United States. He was experiencing Pneumonia and was admitted at the hospital last Friday. Thaneswar Guragai, who himself is a Guinness World Record holder for the longest spinning of a basketball on the nose, validated that Dangi passed away on Friday. Guragai had been helping Dangi in numerous tour programmes.
The Lyndon B. Johnson Tropical Medical Center, Pago Pago of Samoa Islands is getting ready to issue the death certificate prior to handing over Dangi’s body to his family members or their representative, he added.
Dangi gained his title in 2012 when Guinness officials heard reports of a man in Nepal who was 2 inches smaller than the current record holder, a 23.5-inch man in the Philippines. The 31-pound Dangi was proud of his title, and particularly enjoyed representing his home country.
Dangi was utilized in the Magic Circus of Samoa.
