The world's oldest individual, a 117-year-old Japanese girl, has died.

Since Brown's death, Guinness World Records has been investigating who is the oldest person in the world and was yet to recognise Tajima as such. She reportedly had greater than 160 descendants, together with great-great-great grandchildren. At the time, Tajima became a local celebrity because of the news, as video of her was shown on Japanese television, with her even moving her hands along to the music.
