A woman who claims to be 120-years old has been discovered in Brazil.

The indigenous Maria Lucimar Pereira would become the world’s oldest living person – by six years – if the findings in the remote north-west Brazilian Amazon state of Acre are true.

At present American Besse Cooper, who was born on August 26, 1896 – making her nearly 115-years old – is regarded as the oldest in the world.

Though Mrs Pereira could be the rightful owner of her crown.

Staff for Brazil’s National Institute of Social Security (INSS) have said that they found the elderly lady during routine checks of state birth records.

The birth certificate says she was born on September 3, 1890, which means that – if it is accurate – she will easily be the oldest person on the planet.

According to that birth certificate she is 120 years, nine months and 25 days old. Put another way, she has been on the planet for an amazing 44,128 days.
