September 6, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
A man from Bogota, Colombia set a new record for being the shortest living man in the world.Edward Nino Hernandez is just 27 inches tall and weighs 22 pounds. That makes him just barely taller than a piece of carry-on luggage.

Guinness World Records just certified the 24-year-old Colombian's claim.

Nino, as he likes to be called, stopped growing when he was 2 years old, but doctors don't know why.

However, he isn't expected to hold the title long. The shortest living teen turns 18 next month and is expected to take it.
