Joao Coelho
de Souza caused a stir after his photos and a birth certificate were
published by social security workers from Acre in Brazil. According
to the official documents, Joao was born in the city of Meruoca in
Ceara 131 years ago! Moreover, the man has a
wife 69 years younger than him and three children. The discovery came
to light thanks to Kennedy Afonso, a local civil servant, who shared
photos of documents on his Facebook page and appealed to the
state government to register Joao for the Guinness Book of Records.
Joao
lives with his 62-year-old wife and a 16-year-old granddaughter in a
village Estirao do Alcantara. Although he suffered a stroke six years ago,
he is still sane and rather healthy.
Commenting
on the doubts about her father’s age, his daughter Cirlene Souza,
30, said: “You hear everything: People
that criticise and say it’s a lie and others that admire the fact someone can
live so long. It sometimes offends me because everything is documented and
the documents have already been examined by experts to see if they’d been
falsified and nothing abnormal was found. He has days when he is lucid but
others when he doesn’t even recognise his children. He was very small when
he came to work in Acre extracting rubber. He has been with my mum for
more than 40 years and depends on others for everything.”
