Last 19th century man dies




Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura, recognized by Guinness World Records as the oldest man (MEET: Last living man born in 19th century) in recorded history, has died at the age of 116.

Kimura, born in 1897, died of natural causes in hospital in Kyoto, Japan early this morning.

Hospitalized for pneumonia on May 11, over the past few days his response, blood-sugar level and urine production had declined, according to the statement.
Kimura was recognised by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest living person in December 2012 when an American woman died aged 115.

Kimura was also the world’s oldest living person. That title now goes to Misao Okawa of Japan, who was born on March 5, 1898, according to a list of the world’s oldest people compiled by the Los Angeles-based Genealogy Research Group.
