Luo Meizhen of China may be oldest person ever at 127

Luo Meizhen of China may be oldest person ever at 127

The Chinese woman just celebrated her birthday, but she isn't on the official list
I wonder what a birthday cake would look like with 127 candles on it? I won't have to worry about extinguishing all those candles any time soon, but one woman may have.

Luo Meizhen, who lives in China's Guangxi province, reportedly celebrated her 127th birthday just days ago and if it's verified she'll be the oldest person who ever lived. However, that may be impossible because while she says she was born in 1885, birth certificates in the region only started to be kept after the 1949 Communist takeover. All she has is a faded copy of her identity card as shown in this video from 2011.

World's oldest woman dies in China aged 127

By James Griffiths in News on Jun 12, 2013 5:00 PM

Luo Meizhen, born in Guangxi in 1885, has died aged 127 years old. She was the world's oldest woman, and may have been the oldest person ever to have lived.

Though official documents said that Luo was born in 1885, international authorities, including Guinness World Records, never recognised her claim to be the oldest person ever to have lived. China did not have a reliable birth certification system at the end of the nineteenth century, and though Luo's birth date was listed on her hukou and identity card, both where issued in recent decades.
