World’s oldest person dies at 115

A woman who lived to see five of her great-great grandchildren born and was believed to have been the world’s oldest person has died in Portugal at the age of 115, officials said. Maria de Jesus died Friday morning in an ambulance near the central Portuguese town of Tomar.

She had been listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest person. That title now falls to an American, 114-year-old Gertrude Baines, who lives in a Los Angeles nursing home.
