On October 20, the reporter learned from the village branch of Xinmin village, Guanzhuang Township, Fenghuang county that Tian Longyu, known as “Hunan’s first birthday star”, died in the early morning of September 28 at the age of 127.
She was born in Fengyu village, Fengyu County, Hunan Province for three months since 1896. Since 2008, she has been named “China’s top ten birthday stars”.
A village cadre said: “the old man has no disease and no pain. He died naturally.” She has been living with her adopted daughter, Zhang Guiying. According to her adopted daughter, the old man only eats two meals a day, breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and dinner at about 5:00 p.m., and each meal is half full. The old man likes to eat cereal, sweet potato and vegetables, and tofu is her favorite food. Experts who had done physical examination for Tian Longyu said that the lung function and electrocardiogram of the old man were totally different from those of such an old man. A large part of the hair is dark green. One might think she’s an old lady in her 80s.
