Seven long-lived siblings in Shijiang village of Liuyang city in Hunan Province are a total of 621 years old.

"I turned 99 this year, and my sister is 93 and our brothers are 91, 89, 87, 84 and 78," said Liu Hehai, who lives at Shijiang village. Liu, who celebrated his 99th birthday on October 17, said, "My neighbors have encouraged us to live 1,000 years."

He and the others attributed their longevity to moderate living. All smoke and drink, Liu said, but never to excess. "We live a happy life so our lives are long," he added.
