worlds oldest man salus-tiano sanchez-blasquez

An upstate New York man believed to be the world's oldest man has died at the age of 112.

Guiness World Records says Salus-Tiano Sanchez-Blasquez died at a nursing home in Grand Island.

He was born in Spain and came to the United States through Ellis Island in 1920.

He worked as a coal miner and a construction worker, and he credited a banana a day and six Anacin tablets for his longevity.

His daughter says he was just an "independent, stubborn man."
