Broc Brown from Michigan, USA has been dubbed the world’s tallest teenager just before he turned 19 and he might not stop from growing, says his mother. Towering at 7 feet and 8 inches, Broc’s incredible height is caused by a genetic disorder he was diagnosed with when he was only 5 years old. The said condition also known as Sotos Syndrome or cerebral gigantism affects around 1 in 15,000 people.
The 19-year-old giant is also close to becoming the world’s tallest man. Quickly growing at the rate of 6 inches a year, he is more likely to snatch the title from current Guinness World Record holder Sultan Kosen, a Turkish farmer who stands 8 feet and 2 inches tall.
