World’s oldest Georgian woman dies at 132

      A Georgian woman, who claimed to be the world’s oldest living person, has died at the age of 132. Antisa Khvichava, who lived in the remote mountain village of Sachino in Georgia, held Soviet-era documents which said she was born on July 8, 1880, but her age was contested and never proven.

The woman, who lived with her 42-year-old grandson in an idyllic vine-covered country house in the mountains, retired from her job as a tea and corn picker in 1965, when she was aged 85, the Daily Mail reported.

She was said to have had 12 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren – and attributed her good health to drinking a small amount of local brandy every day. Her 72-year-old son Mikhail was apparently born when his mother was 60. However, experts doubted her claim, substantiated on birth documents much younger than her.
