The Vietnam Book of Records (Vietkings) recognized a 116-year-old member of the Mo Nong ethnic minority as the oldest living man in Vietnam, news website VnExpress reported.
Y’N Dong resides in Dak Song District in the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong.
He is reported to be in good health, can still walk fast and has a sound mind.
His wife, H’Doi, is 94 years old.
The couple had 14 children, seven of whom are still alive, 44 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.
“Since I was born, my life has been attached to farmwork. I rarely use medicine, but I’m still healthy,” Y’N Dong said.
In July, Vietkings granted a certificate recognizing Nguyen Thi Tru, 121, of Ho Chi Minh City as the oldest living woman in Vietnam.
