(中央社加德滿都17日綜合外電報導)家屬透露,獲金氏世界紀錄認證的全球最矮可行走男子馬加爾,今天在尼泊爾一家醫院病逝,得年27歲。身高67.08公分的馬加爾,生前曾訪問多國,還擔任過尼泊爾觀光大使。

馬加爾(Khagendra Thapa Magar)與雙親同住在距離尼泊爾首都加德滿都(Kathmandu)約200公里的波卡拉(Pokhara)。他今天不敵肺炎摧殘,病逝當地一家醫院。

馬加爾的兄弟馬赫希(Mahesh)告訴法新社:「他因為肺炎不斷進出醫院,但這次他的心臟也受感染,在今天撒手人寰。」

馬加爾2010年度過18歲生日時,首度獲金氏世界紀錄(Guinness World Records)認證為全球最矮可行走男子。

隨後另名尼泊爾人丹吉(Chandra Bahadur Dangi)以54.6公分的身高,奪走馬加爾的頭銜。但丹吉在2015年過世,馬加爾又重新成為全球最矮可行走男子。

馬加爾曾訪問超過12個國家,還在歐洲和美國參加電視節目。他更成為尼泊爾推廣旅遊的官方代言人,主打他是世界最高峰聖母峰所在國家裡的全球最矮男性。

英國廣播公司(BBC)報導,馬加爾曾表示:「我不認為自己是個矮子。我是個高大的人,我希望擁有這個頭銜能讓我證明這點,並讓我和家人能有間像樣的房子。」

根據金氏世界紀錄,目前全球最矮的無法行走男子仍是菲律賓的巴拉溫(Junrey Balawing),他的身高僅59.93公分。(譯者:侯文婷/核稿:張正芊)1090118

We are saddened today to hear of the passing of the world’s shortest man, Khagendra Thapa Magar from Nepal. He was 27 years old.⁣ ⁣ Khagendra, who was born on 14 October 1992, stood at 67.08 cm (2 ft 2.41 in) tall when measured at Fewa City Hospital in Pohkara, Nepal, on the advent of his 18th birthday in 2010. ⁣ ⁣ Khagendra was born in the Baglung district of Nepal, the eldest son of Roop Bahadur and Dhan Maya. His father recalled, “He was so tiny when he was born that he could fit in the palm of your hand, and it was very hard to bathe him because he was so small.”⁣ ⁣ According to friends, Khagendra had been struggling recently with heart problems, asthma and pneumonia.⁣ ⁣ "We’re terribly sad to hear the news from Nepal that Khagendra is no longer with us," said Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday, who first met Khagendra during his visit to Italy in 2010. ⁣ ⁣ "His bright smile was so infectious that he melted the hearts of anyone who met him. As many people of short stature experience, life can be challenging when you weigh just 6 kg and you don’t fit into world built for the average person. But Khagendra certainly didn’t let his small size stop him from getting the most out of life. It’s been an honour to know him and his family, and a privilege to share his story with the world."⁣ ⁣ Click the link in our bio for more memories of Khagendra.
