If proved true, he would become the world's oldest known living person. According to Murasi, he worked as a shoemaker till 1957. "Maybe the angel of death has forgotten me," he said. "I've lived for so long I've even seen the death of my grand children's grandchildren. Murasi, who has no records of health problems, said that he consulted the doctor last time in 1971.
