A 128-year-old woman was buried Friday in El Salvador.
Cruz Hernandez, who national birth records show was born on May 3, 1878, in central El Salvador, passed away in her sleep on Thursday, neighbour and close family friend Margarita Ascencio said by telephone. Hernandez died without being recognized by the Guinness Book of Records.
"She had been poorly for a few days, and yesterday, after eating a tamale and drinking some milk, she went to sleep and never woke up," Ascencio said.
Many who knew her attributed her longevity to her favourite drink of a beer with two raw eggs in it. [Link]Her diet was strangely similar to that of this woman. I need to eat more eggs and drink more booze.
