Russia's Oldest Man Dies at 122

Magomed Labazanov, the longest living man in Russia, had died at the age of 122 in his home in the village of Serebryakovka in the North Caucasus republic of Dagestan. Officials say he died from an unknown illness which had not let him eat for several days.

      According to archive documents, Magomed Labazanov was born on May 1, 1890 in the village of Gadari in Dagestan, in the Russian Empire.

      Assuming Labazanov was born on the date indicted in his passport, he managed to live almost twice the average life span of a Russian man, for whom life expectancy is 64.3 years, according to state statistics. Labazanov lived through three centuries, was a witness of such crucial events in Russia's history as the October Revolution of 1917, the Russian Civil War that lasted until 1921, the birth and death of the Soviet Union, and two world wars. He left behind four children, eighteen grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.

      His age, however, had not been officially certified, as the latest information about his date of birth dated 1960's, while older documents were destroyed in fire in the 1930's. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, all pretenders to age records must have an original birth certificate issued within 20 years of that birth.
