Little Hitler and Little Churchill

Little Hitler and Little Churchill

Little Hitler...

Little Churchill?

Following the death of the world's smallest man earlier this year another Chinese man has stepped forward hoping to claim the title. Huang Kaiquan, 40, of Sanjiang village, Hejiang County in southwest China's Sichuan province, measures only 2ft 5.91in (76 cm). This makes him just 1.4cm taller than He Pingping, who was just 2ft 5.37in (74.6cm) tall. He Pingping was officially recognised as the world's smallest man until his death in March this year at the age of just 21. Huang, who weighs just 12kg, the same as a three-year-old, is now hoping to claim the record. According to his mother [pictured with him] Cheng Fuxiu, Huang, or 'short brother' as he is known locally, was born in February 1970. He is the second child and only son and all the other family members are of normal height. Picture: QUIRKY CHINA NEWS / REX FEATURES
