“World’s Oldest Man” Challenged By Woman Who Says She’s 127

A Japanese man was declared the world’s oldest living person at age 115 earlier this month by the Guinness Book of Records, but a Chinese woman says she’s the champ.

This week an official news agency repeated claims that a Chinese woman is 127 years old, which would make her the record-holder by a large margin.

Jiroemon Kimura, a former postman who was born on April 19, 1897, was named the world’s oldest person by Guinness World Records after the death of American Dina Manfredini…

However, just a few days ago the Xinhua agency reported on Luo Meizhen, a woman who claims to have turned 127 in September…

If Ms Luo is truly 127, that would make her the oldest person ever to have lived, beating Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 aged 122.
