BBC: “The Indonesian man who claimed to be 146 years old – the longest living human ever – has died in his village in Central Java. According to his papers, Sodimedjo, also known as Mbah Ghoto (grandpa Ghoto), was born in December 1870.
But Indonesia only started recording births in 1900 – and there have been mistakes before.
Yet officials told the BBC his papers were valid, based on documents he provided and interviews with him.”
