In India, there is a unique man named Jaley Lindo, who is literally locked in the body of a small child.
When he was 2 years old, his development completely stopped. Lindo, now 32, still looks like a toddler.
Jaley was born into a family of poor Indian farmers.
The boy’s mom and dad hoped that when he grew up, he would help them cope with the huge household. But when Jaley was 2 years old, something terrible happened – he simply stopped developing. Time passed, but Lindo still looked like a small child.
The boy’s parents did not know how to help their son.
Of course, they turned to doctors, but they only “shrugged their shoulders”. Doctors found that Jaley was not developing both physically and mentally. Even at the age of 15, the boy’s intelligence was at the level of a 2-year-old child.
The cause of Jaley’s feature was a malfunction in the pituitary gland, which stopped producing growth hormones.
Jaley is now 32 and still in the body of a child.
The height of the boy is only 84 cm, and the weight is about 10 kg. Parents take care of him. He is spoon-fed, bathed in a miniature bath and dressed up in children’s clothes.
They sincerely love their unusual child, but they worry about his future fate. After all, who wants to take care of their baby when they leave this world?
Unfortunately, Jaley has no chance of recovery. The specialists who treated him came to the same conclusion – Jaley will forever remain the “oldest child in the world.”
However, his parents do not lose hope that one day their boy will finally grow up.
