The world's shortest woman visits one of the tallest buildings in the United States.

Jyoti Amge is just 24.7 inches high, that's around 60 cm's.

The Indian teenager was at New York's Empire State Building to promote the 2014 edition of Guinness World Records.

"I like it very much. Being in the Guinness World Records I get to visit different places like London, Italy, New York and everywhere."
