Longevity myth

Sarah Nwakohwu Wuche (born 13 July 1883?) is a Nigerian longevity myth who claims to be the oldest person ever.


Sarah Nwakohwu Wuche claims to have been born in Nigeria on 13 July 1883. Her claim falls far outside an age range considered plausible by aging researchers; the oldest verified person ever was Jeanne Calment, who lived to be 122, and 125 is theorized to be approaching the biological limit for humans. As such, reaching the age of 137 is regarded as biologically impossible. She would have held the title of world's oldest person for over 20 years since the death of Sarah Knauss on 30 December 1999.

Sarah Nwakohwu Wuche currently lives in Nigeria at the claimed age of 137 years, 343 days.
