Worlds oldest Human aged 146 dies!
An Indonesian man named Sidomejo, known locally as Mbah Gotho who claimed to be the worlds oldest human aged 146 dies. Sidomejo has an Indonesian id card that shows his birth date 31/12/1870. His age is yet to be officially verified but if it is he will have outlived the current world record holder, French woman Jeanne Calment aged 122 by a staggering 24 years!
Mbah Gotho, a heavy smoker, was taken into Hospital last month with an undisclosed illness. He self discharged only 6 days later and went home, eating only porridge until his death a few days later.
Doubts about Mbah Gotho's age have been raised
Since Indonesia did not start to record births till the 1900's people are sceptical about his real age. Officials at his local record office have said they have been able to verify his age and that he is in fact 146 years old.
Mr Gotho has been preparing to die for years
Sidomejo has said he wanted to die for years, he even had a gravestone carved way back in 1992 ready for his death. but 25 years on he was still alive!
Worlds oldest human outlives generations of family
The worlds oldest man outlived 4 wives, all of his siblings and his children. He can now rest peacefully with his family.
Mr Ghoto was buried Monday morning at a plot he had purchased many years ago using the gravestone he had made back in 1992.
Will he ever be given the title of worlds oldest human?
Officials are trying their best to verify Mr Gotho's claims but unfortunately without official documents he may not make it to the Guinness book of records!
A number of other people have claimed to be the title holders including a Nigerian man at 171 and an Ethiopian claiming to be 163!
