Oldest man in the world dies aged 111by

New York City resident Alexander Imich, the oldest man on Earth, has died. He was 111 years old.

NEW YORK CITY -- The world's oldest man, Alexander Imich, who survived the Nazi invasion of Poland by fleeing to Russia, has died. He was 111 years old.

According to his friends Michael Mannion and Trish Corbett who looked after him at his Upper West Side apartment in New York, he passed away peacefully on Sunday morning. Imich only attained the title as the world's oldest man recently, after the previous record holder, the Italian Arturo Licata, died a few days before his 112th birthday in April.

Imich credited his long life to eating healthily, exercising when he was younger and staying away from alcohol. When asked for his secret to longevity in an interview with NBC 4 New York last month, Imich said he wasn't sure, and humbly explained: "I don't know, I simply didn't die earlier."

The rank of world's oldest man will now go to Sakari Momoi of Japan, also 111 and born just a day after Imich in 1903. This doesn't make him the world's oldest person, though, as 66 women are older than him. The world's oldest living person is Misao Okawa, a 116-year-old woman in Japan.
