Mexican Woman Claims To Be 127 Years Old


Mexican Woman Claims To Be 127 Years Old, The Oldest Ever On Earth | Fox News Latino.

A woman who lives in Mexico just turned a reported 127 years old.  Her family claims she is the oldest person alive.  She cannot hold this title however, because her birth certificate (if she ever had one) was lost years ago.  She has buried all her children and many of her grand-children.  She sleeps for up to 72 hours at a time, and is deaf with severe cataracts.  Her family says she has lived so long because she was “always a fighter” and “never ceased to be active”.  Her family had to make sure she had plenty of rest ahead of time-and then was awake so she didn’t miss her birthday party!
