Nabi Tajima, the Oldest person in the world died Saturday night, in Japan at age 117.
According to the Associated Press, Tajima was born on Aug. 4, 1900, and reportedly had more than 160 descendants.
Seven months ago a Violet brown from Jamaica died who was also 117. However ABC reports there was someone even older (unofficially) who recently passed:
Ms Tajima’s death comes three days after the death of Celino Villanueva Jaramillo, who claimed he was 121 years old. Mr Jaramillo’s ID card stated he was born on July 25, 1896, but he was not recognised as the world’s oldest person by Guinness due to a lack of official documentation. The Chilean lost his birth certificate in a fire that burned his house down 20 years prior.
She was the last surviving person born in the 19th century.
