Video Of The Week - Planet's Oldest Person Turns 115

By on

Gertrude Baines, the Planet's oldest person celebrated her 115th birthday in Los Angeles, Calfornia on April 7th, in what was described a low-key party, with just some music, a cake and a few friends.

Ms. Baines earned the title in January of 2009, after Maria De Jesus from Portugal passed away at the age of 115.

Among the gifts, was an official proclamation of her new status from the Guinness Book of Records, as well as, a letter of congratulations from President Barack Obama.

We wish Ms. Baines our heartiest congratulations and hope to see a similar video next year!
