100-year-old Israeli woman celebrates 25th birthday

Maniya Bregsun, a 100-year-old woman, is celebrating her 25th birthday today, thanks to the freak coincidence of being born on February 29.

Bregsun, born in Poland in 1916, seems somewhat nonplussed by the attention as she is interviewed by Channel 2 news.

Bregsun moved to Israel in 1947 and lost her son in the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

She tells the channel she is “disappointed by the government.”

“I’m not a big lefty, but I’m still not satisfied,” she says.

The presenter asks what he can wish her, and she answers back not much.

“Health already isn’t important,” she says. “I’m already near the end.”
