Asiye Sutlu at the claimed age of 118
|Birth:||17 April 1899?|
119 years, 241 days?
Asiye Sutlu (born 17 April 1899?) is a Turkish longevity claimant who claims to be the world's oldest living person.
Sutlu was allegedly born on 17 April 1899 in Sirvan, Turkey. Her husband died 45 years ago, when she was "73". She has 41 grandchildren and is cared for by her daughter-in-law, Zinnet. She reportedly suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure. She claims the reason for her alleged longevity is "eating organic food”.
Sutlu does not have any original proof of her birth. The only documentation supporting her claimed age is a recently-issued Turkish identity card. If her age were validated, she would be the world's oldest validated person. Currently, that title is held by Kane Tanaka of Japan, according to the Gerontology Research Group.
