World’s oldest man dies at 113

Baku, August 11, AZERTAC

Israeli citizen Yisrael Kristal, who was recognized as the world’s oldest man, died in Israel’s Haifa on Friday, according to TASS. He was 113.

Kristal was born in Poland on September 15, 1903. The Holocaust survivor was recognized as the oldest man in the world after the death of Japanese supercentenarian Yasutaro Koide, who passed away on January 19, 2016, two months before his 113rd birthday.

Jamaican supercentenarian Violet Brown, born on March 10, 1900, is currently the oldest verified living person in the world.
