Meet the world's tallest teen

See what life is like for the ninth-grader from Leshan in the Sichuan province of China who now holds the Guinness World Record for being the World’s Tallest Teen.  Xiaoyu stands 7 foot, 3.02 inches tall.  Doctors say he does not have the condition of gigantism, or any illness or hormone disorder, he's just tall.  Xiaoyu says his height may be hereditary. 

Xiaoyu desks and chairs are made just for his size.   All his clothes have to be tailor-made.  Even his bed and shoes have to be fitted just for him.
