The oldest person in the world has died

5 May

Kama Chinen, of Okinawa, Japan, was born on 1895 May 10 and she became the oldest person in the world on 2009 September 11 at the age of 114.
(Click here to read the post I wrote when she became the “World’s Oldest Person”.)

It was just reported that she died a few days ago on 2010 May 2. Only eight days before her 115th birthday.

Kama Chinen, 1895 May 10 - 2010 May 2, R.I.P.

Now the World’s Oldest Person is Eugenie Blanchard from France. She was born on 1896 February 16…about nine months after Kama Chinen was born.

      Oh yeah, I miscounted.
      The late Ms. Chinen was born about nine months before the current “world’s oldest person” Ms. Blanchard.

        I meant that she must have been born in the year 1886 or she would barely be older than me 😛

        I didn’t even notice that. I transposed the “8” and “9”.
        She was born in 1896.

        I just corrected this post.

        Thanks for pointing it out.

        So…you’re only 24??
